Abnormal Uterine Bleeding(AUB)

  • Menorrhagia: excessive and/or prolonged menstruation.
  • Metrorrhagia: excessive, prolonged and/or irregular bleeding unrelated to menstruation.

You can’t prevent many causes of abnormal uterine bleeding. But you can reduce your risk of certain conditions that lead to abnormal bleeding. For instance, maintaining a healthy weight plays a potential role in keeping your hormones balanced. Avoiding diets that contain a high amount of animal fat can reduce your risk of some cancers.

Your process for diagnosis and your options for treatment depend on what’s causing your bleeding. When making a diagnosis, your provider will consider multiple factors, including your age, symptoms, and risk factors for certain conditions that cause abnormal bleeding.
