Abnormal Uterine Bleeding: Understanding and Managing Menstrual Irregularities

Abnormal uterine bleeding can be a concerning and disruptive issue that affects many women. Abnormal uterine bleeding refers to any unusual or irregular bleeding from the uterus, which may include heavy or prolonged menstrual periods, irregular menstrual cycles, or bleeding between periods.

What is Abnormal Uterine Bleeding?

Abnormal uterine bleeding encompasses a range of menstrual irregularities that deviate from a typical menstrual cycle. This can include heavy menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia), frequent periods (polymenorrhea), infrequent periods (oligomenorrhea), and unpredictable bleeding between periods (metrorrhagia). Understanding the underlying cause of abnormal uterine bleeding is crucial for effective management and relief.
