Tarzana Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding

abnormal uterine bleeding
Vaginal bleeding will always occur during the normal menstrual cycle, which happens to last between 21 and 35 days on average, with a normal period of bleeding during time for an average of 2 to 7 days.

When you begin noticing abnormal bleeding patterns outside of the normal menstrual cycle, then you have cause for concern. The phenomenon is also referred to as dysfunctional uterine bleeding or spotting.

What Causes Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding?

Abnormal vaginal bleeding that occurs by itself is generally not considered a serious issue. The issue usually occurs as a result of an underlying problem that is typically determined by process of elimination.
  • Hormonal imbalance – there are a couple of hormones that regulate the cycle: estrogen and progesterone. If these hormones become out of balance, then abnormal bleeding may occur.

  • Pregnancy complications – miscarriage and high-risk pregnancy have a tendency to cause abnormal bleeding.

  • Infection – if the reproductive organs become infected, abnormal vaginal bleeding may result. Infections may develop from STDs.

  • Polyps – these are non-cancerous growths that sometimes occur in women, especially after pregnancy. They will cause bouts of abnormal bleeding.
There are also other are causes such as cancer, diabetes, and extreme stress.
