Menometrorrhagia is a condition marked by abnormally heavy, prolonged, and irregular uterine bleeding. Women with this condition usually bleed more than 80 ml, or 3 ounces, during a menstrual cycle. The bleeding is also unexpected and frequent. For example, you’ll likely experience bleeding outside of when you’d expect your menstrual period to occur.
Menometrorrhagia is actually a combination of two menstrual disorders:
- menorrhagia, which is heavy uterine bleeding that occurs at regular intervals
- metrorrhagia, which is irregular bleeding
It’s important to seek medical help if you’re experiencing menstrual irregularity. Unexpected or abnormal menstrual bleeding can have health consequences that shouldn’t be ignored.
Treatment for menometrorrhagia depends on the cause.
