Abstract

The prevalence and impact of most underlying disorders of hemostasis are reviewed in women with excessive menstrual bleeding. The most common underlying bleeding disorder is von Willebrand disease, which occurs in only 1% to 2% of the general population but in approximately 13% of women with excessive menstrual bleeding.
