Abnormal Bleeding

Abnormal bleeding in women can occur due to various reasons. Some of the common causes include:


  • Hormonal imbalance: Hormonal imbalances due to conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), thyroid disorders, or menopause can lead to abnormal bleeding.


  • Fibroids: Fibroids are non-cancerous growths in the uterus that can cause heavy or prolonged bleeding.


  • Endometriosis: This is a condition where the tissue lining the uterus grows outside of the uterus, leading to heavy or irregular bleeding.


  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID): PID is an infection of the female reproductive organs that can cause bleeding.


  • Certain medications: Some medications, such as blood thinners, can cause abnormal bleeding.


  • Cancer: In rare cases, abnormal bleeding can be a sign of cervical or uterine cancer.


It is important to consult with a doctor if you experience abnormal bleeding. This is because abnormal bleeding can be a symptom of a serious condition that needs prompt medical attention. Additionally, if left untreated, some conditions that cause abnormal bleeding can lead to complications such as anemia or infertility. A doctor can help determine the cause of the bleeding and provide appropriate treatment.
