See gynecologist: Menorrhagia is an abnormally heavy and prolonged menstrual period at regular intervals. Menorrhagia can be caused by abnormal blood clotting, disruption of normal hormonal regulation of periods, or disorders of the endometrial lining of the uterus. You should see a gynecologist where a complete history including medications will be obtained and additional testing may be necessary.
