What is abnormal vaginal bleeding?Abnormal vaginal bleeding is any heavy or unusual bleeding from the uterus (through your vagina). It can occur at any time during your monthly cycle, including during your normal periods.
Symptoms of abnormal vaginal bleeding:
Virginal bleeding between periods is one symptom of abnormal uterine bleeding. Having extremely heavy bleeding during your period can also be considered normal vaginal bleeding. Very heavy bleeding during periods and or bleeding that’s lasts for more than 7 days is called menorrhagia. For example, women may bleed enough to soak one or more tampons or sanitary pads after each one hour.
Causes of vaginal bleeding:A variety of things can cause abnormal vaginal bleeding. Pregnancy is a common cause. Polyps and fibroids inn the uterus can also cause bleeding. Rarely, a thyroid problem, doctors call the problem dysfunctional uterine bleeding, or DUB. Abnormal bleeding caused by hormone imbalance is more common in teenagers or in women who are approaching menopause.
These are just few of the problems that can cause abnormal vaginal bleeding. These problems can occur at any age, but the likely cause of vaginal bleeding usually depends on your age.
· Women in 20 and 30 age:
A common cause of vaginal bleeding in young age women and teenagers is pregnancy. Many women have abnormal bleeding in the first month of a normal pregnancy. Some birth control pills or the intrauterine device (IUD) can also cause abnormal bleeding.
· Women in their 40 and early age:
In the years before menopause and when menopause begins, women have months when they do no ovulate. This can cause abnormal vaginal bleeding, including heavy periods and lighter, irregular bleeding.
· Women after menopause:
Hormone replacement therapy is a common cause of vaginal beeding after menopause. Other causes include endometrial and uterine cancer. These cancers are more common in older women than younger women. But cancer is not always the reason of vaginal bleeding. Many other problems can cause bleeding after menopause. For this reason, it is important to talk to your doctor if you have any bleeding after menopause.
· Diagnosis of vaginal bleeding:
The tests your doctor orders may depend on your age. If you are pregnant your doctor may recommend you a pregnancy test. If your bleeding id heavy, in additions to other tests, your doctor may want to check your blood count to make sure you do not have low blood count from the blood loss. This could lead to iron deficiency anemia.
An ultra sound exam of your pelvic area shows both the uterus and the ovaries. It may also show the cause of your bleeding.
Your doctor may want to do an endometrial biopsy. This is a test of the vaginal lining. It’s done by putting a thin plastic tube (called a catheter) into your uterus. Your doctor will use the catheter to remove a tiny piece of the uterine lining. He or she will send that lining to the lab for testing. The test will show if you have cancer or a change in the cells. A biopsy can be done in the doctor’s office and causes only mild pain.
