Various treatments options are available for heavy periods. Not all the treatments may be suitable for you. What treatment options you are offered will depend on:

  • your symptoms
  • your general health
  • the underlying cause of your heavy periods, if there is 1
  • whether you’re trying for a baby or want to get pregnant in the future
