abnormal uterine bleeding - Causes of Abnormal Menstrual Bleeding

According to studies, 10 to 30% of females are prone to abnormal uterine bleeding at some point in their life. Abnormal uterine or menstrual bleeding refers to any bleeding from the vagina, other than the normal menstrual period. Heavy menstrual bleeding also known as menorrhagia can fall into the category of abnormal menstrual bleeding, even though the bleeding is the part of the menstrual cycle. If you have to go through more than one tampon or pad every two hours, then your period is considered abnormally heavy.

Abnormal Uterine Bleeding Causes:

Abnormally heavy periods can be attributed to a wide range of factors. Only a doctor can properly diagnose and prescribe treatment for these causes.
  • Hormone imbalances, such as thyroid disorders have been shown to increase the risk of abnormal uterine bleeding.
  • Fibroids and polyps often cause symptoms such pressure and pain in the uterine area.
  • Certain types of birth control. Each female is different, and there are many forms of hormonal birth control available, all of which affect each individual differently.
  • Abortion and miscarriage can lead to abnormal bleeding for weeks, and sometimes even months, after the event.
  • Adenomyosis is a non-cancerous disease characterized by the uterine lining existing inside the muscular layer of the uterus.
  • Cervical or uterine cancer often results in abnormal uterine bleeding.
The cause of abnormal heavy bleeding is discovered through a combination of medical tests. These tests include blood sample analysis, tissue biopsies, hysteroscopy, and a pelvic ultrasound. A hysteroscopy refers to the use of a small telescope attached to a video camera to view the inside of the uterus.

Common Treatment Options:

  1. If the cause is fibroids or polyps, then removal of these causes by scraping the uterine wall is generally the first treatment option. The processes of removing fibroids and polyps are called laparoscopy or hysteroscopy.
  2. Changing birth control or prescriptions is a course of action for unexplained uterine bleeding.
  3. In the case of adenomyosis, in some cases of fibroids, and in extreme cases of cancer, the entire uterus must sometimes be removed as a last resort. This procedure is called a hysterectomy.

Laparoscopic hysterectomy - Advances in Gynecology – New Methods for Women’s Health

When it comes to women’s health issues, it could be complicated. However with recent strides in research and development, there have been many advances as regards treatment of women’s health-related issues. As an example, when it comes to birth control, a woman has several options. One such is Essure. Trusted by women, this is a permanent birth control procedure that prevents pregnancy. The whole procedure takes just about 10 minutes. It is 99.8% effective, however, you have to be user that you do not want children in the future since this is not a reversible procedure.

Other gynecological problems or conditions are being treated with cryoablation. Cryoablation uses sub-zero temperatures to reduce or eliminate the endometrium (uterus). One common issue related to endometrium is unusually heavy bleeding during periods. Doctors call this condition abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) or menorrhagia. The good news is that HerOption endometrial cryoablation offers a safe, effective and comfortable treatment of this condition right in the doctor’s office.

Every year, many women go through hysterectomies or the surgical removal of their uterus. Within the US, this is the second most common, major, gynecological operation performed on women, and for the most common reason, fibroids. There are different types of hysterectomy – total hysterectomy, subtotal hysterectormy, supracervical hysterectomy etc. Laparoscopic hysterectomy is a relatively new surgical procedure that allows the uterus to be detached from inside the body by laparoscopic instruments while the doctor is viewing the uterus, tubes and ovaries through a camera attached to a telescope. One advantage is that the incisions are smaller and much less uncomfortable compared to abdominal hysterectomy.

As women age, the muscles and ligaments supporting a woman’s pelvic organs naturally weaken and sometimes the pelvic organs can slip out of place which is medically referred to as prolapse. The normal support is lost. Most of the symptoms are diagnosed during the routine physical examinations of women. Also not many women actually are aware of this condition or medical implications. This condition, called, pelvic organ prolapse, can worsen over time and may need surgery to fix it. There are different types of pelvic organ prolapses. Some women develop vaginal prolapsed, usually after menopause, childbirth or a hysterectomy. Others may develop bladder prolapse, rectal prolapse, uterine prolapse, small bowel prolapse. With so many treatment options available, women no longer need to worry about their health issues.
