Dysmenorrhea and Menorrhagia A Clinician’s Guide 1e 2018 Edition ebook
Dysmenorrhea is estimated to affect upwards of 70% of women during their lifetime and “heavy menstrual periods” is one of the most frequently given reasons for hysterectomy in the United States. Despite the dramatic growth of dysmenorrhea treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs) in the 1980s, young women continue to go undiagnosed and undertreated. The diagnosis and management of heavy menstrual bleeding have even poorer general understanding because of its more complicated etiologies. With a working knowledge of the underlying pathophysiology, all clinicians should be able to establish both the diagnosis and a credible treatment plan that will result in a significant chance of clinical improvement for most patients.
