It is difficult to say from your history as what is the cause, we can arrive at specific diagnosis only after clinical examination followed by few investigations. Specific treatment for menorrhagia is based on a number of factors like overall health and medical history, the cause and severity of the condition, tolerance for specific medications, procedures or therapies, effects of the condition on lifestyle and personal preference.
