Heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) and dysmenorrhea are common complaints among adolescent females (O’Brien, 2018). For females with underlying bleeding and clotting disorders, managing their menstrual bleeding can provide challenges unique to their stages of life.
In this session, we will explore current practices to identify and treat HMB, available screening and diagnostic tools, differential diagnoses to consider, treatment options available including their associated risks and benefits, and ongoing monitoring and follow-up. We will look at how a multidisciplinary collaborative clinic can be utilized to improve access to care and outcomes and increase patient satisfaction. We will also use case studies to identify treatment challenges and potential knowledge gaps, which may help direct future areas of research.
