PROLONGED MENSTRUATION

Prolonged menstruation is described as menstrual periods that span over seven days.

CAUSES

Fibroids: Uterine fibroids are a type of benign tumors that grow in your womb. The real cause of these tumors is not clear yet. Some women experience no symptoms, while others experience some. For instance:

Hormonal Imbalance: If you experience periods that last longer than usual it usually happens due to an imbalance in your hormones.

Thyroid Disease: Your abnormal bleeding and prolonged period may also be the outcome of a thyroid disease.
