Gynecology Bleeding Problems, Treatment for Heavy Bleeding

If you are having issues with heavy bleeding we suggest you call your gynecologist as soon as possible. Any information on-line is for reference only and is not a substitution for a board certified gynecologist.

Excessive bleeding – Heavy or prolonged menstrual periods are the most common type of abnormal bleeding from the uterus. Periods are considered heavy if there is enough blood to soak a pad or tampon every hour for several consecutive hours. There are many reasons for excessive bleeding, including hormone imbalance, fibroids or non-cancerous tumors in the uterus, problems with a non-hormonal IUD birth control, Adenomyosis (link with definition), use of blood thinners, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, uterine, cervical or ovarian cancer, or other medical conditions that can prevent normal blood clotting.

Unpredictable bleeding – abnormal vaginal bleeding is if spotting occurs between periods. Bleeding is considered unpredictable and abnormal if it happens when you aren’t expecting your period, when menstrual flow is lighter or heavier than what is normal for you, and if it happens at a time in life when it’s not expected, such as before age 9, or after menopause. Unpredictable bleeding has many causes, such as pregnancy, ovulation, Polycystic ovary syndrome, birth control pills, intrauterine device (IUD), infection, Pelvic Inflammatory disease, uterine fibroids, polyps, cancer, stress, or other disease.

Missing periods – normal missed periods occur at the beginning and end of menstruation when hormones are not in balance, and with pregnancy. Other causes of missed periods are excessive weight loss or gain, eating disorders, increased exercise, stress, travel, illness, medicines, hormone imbalance, breast feeding, and problems with pelvic organs.
