Menorrhagia (Heavy Menstrual Bleeding) Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for menorrhagia (heavy menstrual bleeding). It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "menorrhagia (heavy menstrual bleeding)" is rarely designed with the resulting "menorrhagia (heavy menstrual bleeding)" exclusively in mind.

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.
