Hello ,
Thanks for the query,

You are Severely anemic.

Causes of menorrhagia vary widely between women, but some problems commonly at the root of unusually heavy bleeding include fibroids, low progesterone relative to estrogen (both common in perimenopause), PCOS, or other hormonal imbalance.

In your case Uterine fibroids is the cause of heavy bleeding.
Get TVS done and MRI for myoma mapping.
You need to get your fibroids removed either by myomectomy or hysterectomy.

Hope this helps,
Dr Nilofer

Welcome to HCM,
You are having blood loss due to fibroid in uterus and this blood loss causes anemia due to Iron deficiency.
At your age there are hormone changes of perimenopausal type and fibroids make irreular bleeding called DUB.
If you are having bleeding please visit your Gynecologist and confirm source and cause of bleeding becaise in such case they will give you hormone prepration and once bleeding is controlled and your anemia is treated with blood transfusion and iron and vitamin supplements.
Various surgical option may be discissed with doctor and you can be cured.
including sugery hysterectomy.
Please take care of your health
Good Luck.

Hi thanks for your question.
There is no immediate management for your problem.Probably your suffering from what is called as dysfunctional uterine bleeding.Consult a gynaecologist,who may be able to manage your bleeding by drugs.If drug therapy fails,then surgical way of treatment is the only choice.
Surgical treatment is Hystrectomy( removal of uterus) because your bleeding problems drop your HB to dangerious level.
Hope this answer your question.
