What Is Abnormal Uterine Bleeding?

The average woman's menstrual cycle (the time between periods) lasts between 24 and 38 days, and an average period can last up to eight days. Abnormal uterine bleeding can mean:

  • Heavy or prolonged periods
  • Longer or shorter menstrual cycles
  • Spotting or bleeding in between periods
  • Bleeding or spotting after intercourse
  • Bleeding post menopause

Your doctor may order blood tests, test your hormones, or perform an ultrasound to diagnose you. A hysteroscopy involves viewing the inside of the uterus with a scope, and this may help your gynecologist pinpoint the cause of the abnormal bleeding.

What Causes Abnormal Uterine Bleeding?

Abnormal uterine bleeding in Houston, TX, is most common during puberty and perimenopause. Several things can cause abnormal bleeding

  • Polyps in the uterus
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Birth control
  • Irregular ovulation
  • Having a miscarriage
  • Ectopic pregnancy

Certain types of cancer can also cause abnormal uterine bleeding, so your doctor may want X-rays or a biopsy of your uterine lining to rule out cancer.

Treating Abnormal Uterine Bleeding

Abnormal uterine bleeding can be treated in several ways. The best treatment option for you will depend on the severity of your symptoms, your age, and if you want to become pregnant in the future. Treatments can include:

  • HRT (hormone replacement therapy)
  • Anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Birth control to regulate your cycle
  • Uterine artery embolization cuts off blood flow to fibroids to reduce their size
  • Surgically remove fibroids with a myomectomy
  • Endometrial ablation surgically damages the uterine lining to stop the bleeding

If you do not want to become pregnant in the future, a hysterectomy removes the uterus to permanently end your menstrual cycle.
