BACK GROUND: Menorrhagia is heavy menstrual bleeding which causes anemia due to heavy blood loss i.e., more than 80ml. The purpose of this study is how did menorrhagia effects on women’s quality of life. The main aim of the study is to assess the quality of life in menorrhagia with anemia.
METHODS AND MATERIALS: A total of 100 patients were included in the study with heavy menstrual bleeding. The PCS and MCS scoring were done by using SF-12 questionnarie. The statistics were done by using student t test.
RESULTS: The age group of 26-35 (41%) and 77% of married people were mostly affected. The haemoglobin level of menorrhagia patients were found to < 12g/dl. The PCS and MCS scoring before and after counselling are 39.6±4.12, 51.2±3.66(PCS), 34.7±1.16, 49.6±2.19 (MCS) respectively. The P value is <0.05* and <0.01** is calculate by using student t test. The PCS and MCS were significantly increased after counselling.
CONCLUSION: Menorrhagia with anemia has negative effect on women’s quality of life. Hence, the study concludes that quality of life was improved on anemia in menorrhagia patient’s after counselling. We recommended for the further research study should focus on abnormalities in menorrhagia patients, for the effective treatment and better patient compliance.
