Menstrual problems

Heavy or irregular menstrual periods are causing difficulties to many otherwise healthy women and they can severely affect their quality of life.  An accurate diagnosis of the cause of menstrual problems is very important for planning effective treatment.  Ultrasound examination is the simplest and the best way to diagnose most common causes of heavy periods such as uterine fibroids and adenomyosis.  In women diagnosed with uterine fibroids it is important to determine their exact location and size (mapping).  This information helps to decide whether they are a likely cause of menstrual problems and what would be the best approach to the treatment.  Mapping of uterine fibroids is sometimes complex, but it is facilitated by the use of modern three-dimensional technology and the use of contrast media.
