Abnormal Uterine Bleeding

Irregular menstrual periods can result in abnormal uterine bleeding. This bleeding lasts longer than the normal cycle or occurs outside the cycle. Contributing factors may include weight loss/gain, heavy exercise, stress, sickness, or medication side affects.

To diagnose the condition, your physician will review your medical history and may ask you to keep a diary of your menstrual cycle. Some medical tests that your physician may also use are endometrial biopsy, ultrasound, hysteroscopy, and/or laparoscopy.

Treatment for this condition includes medications, hormone therapy, or surgery.
