Heavy menstruation
I am 44 years old. My menstruation is very heavy and sometimes
it keeps on for about 10 days. I use medicine for rheumatoid artheritis. (for 5 years now) Can that be the reason? I also have a lack of iron in my blood. Is that normal?

Anti-inflammmatories often lessen bleeding s this is not the cause. The lack of iron is probably because of the heavy bleeding. You should see your gynaecologist to look for a cause.
