10 Symptoms of Endometriosis
3. Excessive Menstrual Bleeding
All women may have what has been known as “heavy flow days”, but there is generally a problem occurring when this happens on more than one occasion during a menstrual cycle, or begins to tend to be the norm, rather than the exception. This can also affect the typical length of the cycle, which is considered to be abnormal if the bleeding occurs for more than seven days. This can lead to low levels of iron, which can also cause severe fatigue or lethargic feelings, anemia and even hair loss. Iron supplements can be taken, and birth control medication is also an option to help regulate the menstrual courses.
