Evaluation & Treatment of Irregular Periods
Irregular and/or heavy periods are incredibly common. There are numerous different causes of irregular and/or heavy menstrual cycles.
We will begin our evaluation with an in-depth history and a physical exam. You may just have heavy/painful periods. You may have polyps or fibroids making your periods worse. If you have polycystic ovarian syndrome and only have a period every few months, they may be very heavy and painful.
Sometimes a miscarriage can be confused for a very heavy period.
