Abnormal Uterine Bleeding

What is Abnormal Uterine Bleeding?

Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) is a term used to describe any irregular bleeding from the uterus. It is a common problem that can affect women of all ages, and can be caused by a variety of factors, including hormonal imbalances, structural abnormalities of the uterus, and certain medical conditions.

Common symptoms of Abnormal Uterine Bleeding

AUB can take many different forms, including heavy menstrual bleeding, bleeding between periods, or prolonged periods. Women may also experience bleeding after sexual intercourse or menopause, which are not normal and require medical attention.

The diagnosis of AUB typically involves a thorough medical history and physical examination, as well as imaging studies such as ultrasound or hysteroscopy. Blood tests may also be ordered to evaluate for hormonal imbalances or other underlying medical conditions.

Treatment of Abnormal Uterine Bleeding

Treatment for AUB will depend on the underlying cause and severity of symptoms. Hormonal therapies such as birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy may be prescribed to regulate menstrual cycles and reduce bleeding. In some cases, surgical interventions such as endometrial ablation or hysterectomy may be necessary to treat AUB.

It is important for women to seek medical attention if they experience any abnormal bleeding from the uterus. AUB can have a significant impact on a woman’s quality of life, and can also be a sign of more serious medical conditions such as cancer. Early detection and treatment are essential for ensuring the best possible outcomes.
