Meaning of Menorrhagia
Menorrhagia or hematomunia is an abnormally heavy and prolonged menstrual period at irregular intervals. Menorrhagia can be caused by abnormal blood clotting, disruption of normal hormonal regulation of periods, or disorders of the endometrial lining of the uterus. Depending upon the cause, it may be associated with abnormally painful periods (dysmenorrhea). Fibroids can cause menorrhagia. - See link


Menorrhagia in Spanish is Menorragia
La metrorragia (del griego μήτρα , ‘romper’, ‘hacer brotar’) es cualquier hemorragia vaginal, procedente del útero, no asociada al ciclo menstrual por su ritmo o por la cantidad de flujo. Las causas de esta anomalía son, por lo general, locales, es decir, del útero o de la pelvis. Sus causas lejanas pueden relacionarse con las glándulas de secreción interna o con el estado general de salud. - See link
