Hello Olga, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Heavy bleeding during menstruation or menstruation that extends beyond 7 days is also known as menorrhagia in medicine. Menorrhagia can occur for many reasons, including:
Anovulation cycle, namely the egg bladder does not release eggs during ovulation. uterine polyps Cancer in the reproductive tract such as cervical cancer, uterine cancer, or ovarian cancer The presence of blood clotting disorders, either due to disease or drug side effects
Looking at your mother's age, one of the most frequent causes of menorrhagia is anovulatory cycle. Women aged 45-55 years will generally begin to enter perimenopause (the period before menopause). During this perimenopause period, the ovary does not always release an egg during ovulation because of the depleted egg reserves. In this perimenopause period, hormonal changes (higher estrogen than before entering perimenopause) accompanied by anovulatory cycles can cause bleeding that occurs more heavily during menstruation.
We recommend that you take your mother to an obstetrician for further tests. The obstetrician can perform examinations such as ultrasound to assess the presence or absence of disturbances in the reproductive tract, or hormonal examinations if necessary. The gynecologist can also prescribe several medicines that can help stop the bleeding that occurs.
Immediately take your mother to the hospital if the bleeding occurs so much that it causes your mother to change sanitary napkins in less than 1 hour, there are symptoms of dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, cold sweat, heart palpitations, cold hands and feet, visible skin pale.
In the meantime make sure that your mother drinks adequate amounts of fluids. If your mother feels dizzy, immediately find a handle or sit or lie down, to prevent falls and head injuries.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
