UTERINE FIBROIDS AND HEAVY MENSTRUAL BLEEDING
Heavy menstrual bleeding is defined as having blood loss per menstrual cycle greater than 80 mL, approximately 5 ½ tablespoons, as opposed to normal monthly menstrual blood loss which is 30 mL or less, or about 2 tablespoons. Uterine fibroids are benign (not cancerous) tumors in the uterus and are symptomatic (causing symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pressure, bloating, pelvic pain, etc.) in approximately 20%-50% of women. One of the main symptoms of symptomatic uterine fibroids is heavy uterine (menstrual) bleeding that may result in anemia. Symptomatic uterine fibroids may also cause pelvic pressure or pain symptoms, adverse pregnancy outcomes, and are the leading cause of hysterectomy (operation to remove the uterus) and other surgical treatments.
