Thanks for the query.

the possibles causes for your wife's symptoms are.

-physiological edema: when we do most of the work either by standing or sitting, by evening swelling of the feet can occur, as they are depending parts.

-anemia and hypoprotenemia: excessive menstrual bleeding because of uterine pathology or hormonal imbalance can lead to anemia and hypoprotenemia which can lead to swelling of the feet.
they will also cause generalized weakness.

-hypothyroidism: in this case we can see both symptoms, heavy menstrual bleeding and swelling of feet.

so let her consult gynecologist once,
-get physical examination done,
-one ultrasound to rule out uterine pathology like fibroids, adenomyosis etc,
-blood investigation like Hemoglobin, total serum proteins, thyroid profile and random blood sugar.

with this basic workup the possible cause for her symptoms could be found out and treatment can be taken accordingly.
