PMID:  3965308     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The results of this preliminary study indicate that patients with sickle cell disease have shorter menstrual cycles than normal control subjects. Their periods last longer and are heavier, and they have a greater incidence of dysmenorrhea. This study provides some insight into the menstrual characteristics of these patients and, we hope, can contribute to the counseling and management of patients with this disease.
