The duration and severity of menstrual bleeding varies from woman to woman. It's known as menorrhagia if a woman's menstrual period is excessively heavy, prolonged, or irregular.
Menorrhagia is a condition that affects menstruating women and causes excessively heavy and prolonged bleeding during the menstrual cycle.
Menstruation is a monthly occurrence for women in which the body sheds the lining of the uterus (womb), which is then passed through a small opening in the cervix and out through the vaginal canal.
