Wellness Wednesday: Less Common Causes of Heavy Menstrual Periods

We urge women with heavy menstrual bleeding to seek answers, get therapies and if interested, participate in a clinical research trial. Uterine fibroids, uterine polyps, and hormonal imbalance get so much talk on gyno blog, if we have a heavy menstrual period we assume it's one of those conditions. And it would be smart for your gyno to rule out that cause. But there are other, less common, and more hidden causes of bleeding. If you have had a normal pelvic exam, a normal endometrial biopsy, you seem to have hormones in balance considering you have regular periods, there may be other, actually medical conditions as the cause.
Could it be a deficiency of Factor VIII needed for clotting? Von Willebrand factor which carries Factor VIII can be low. When this factor is low, it leads to Factor VIII to be low which can cause bleeding. It check for on a blood test about 1 percent of women will have this. Bleeding Bleeding Bleeding on your Period? Yes, VWF deficiency can be a cause, but not commonly. Actually having this be a cause of your bleeding is less common, approximately 0.01 percent, but when other causes cannot be found, it's something to look for!
