Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding

What is Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding?

Dysfunctional uterine bleeding is heavy or irregular menstrual bleeding that is not caused by an underlying anatomical abnormality, such as a fibroid, lesion, or tumor.

Dysfunctional uterine bleeding is the most common cause of abnormal vaginal bleeding during a woman's reproductive years. It is often a common consequence of stress or illness.

Dysfunctional uterine bleeding is common in girls who have just begun to menstruate. It is also common in women approaching menopause.

Dysfunctional uterine bleeding comes in many forms: heavy periods, infrequent periods, abnormally frequent periods and irregular heavy periods.

Dysfunctional uterine bleeding is also called Anovulatory bleeding and DUB.

What causes Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding?

It is most often caused by life stage, stress, and polycystic ovarian syndrome.

Can Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding be treated?

Yes. The treatment depends on the cause, intensity, and timing of the bleeding, the patient’s age, and if she is trying to conceive. The most common treatments are:

  • oral contraceptives
  • removal of the endometrium
  • removal of the uterus
  • hormone replacement therapy
  • iron supplements

Call Your Doctor Immediately if:

  • You need to change your sanitary pad or tampon more than once an hour.
  • You develop nausea and vomiting, dizziness, or diarrhea while you are taking your medicine.
