For individuals with heavy flow, menstruation can be extremely taxing.
Are there ways of managing duration and heaviness of the menstruation? I know that ibuprofen is prescribed, but how about other medication?
If there's a finite amount of tissue to shed within the uterus, then it would seem that speeding up the sloughing or shedding process would reduce the menstruation period. But I am not sure how hormones play a role in this and if they purely dictate the process or if perhaps the hormones respond to the uterine waste that needs to be removed. (Chicken and egg scenario.)
Can the menstrual cycle be managed?
