Irregular Bleeding

What causes irregular bleeding?

Irregular or abnormal bleeding can lower your quality of life and may even be associated with a condition that can lead to infertility. If you have irregular bleeding issues, it could be a sign of:

  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD)
  • Significant weight gain or loss
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease    
  • Uterine polyps or fibroids
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Thyroid disorders 
  • Endometriosis 

If there’s a possibility that you’re pregnant, bleeding could be a sign of complications, as with an ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage. While less common, occasionally irregular bleeding is associated with gynecological cancer. Because of these potentially serious issues, irregular bleeding isn’t anything you should ignore. 

When should I see a doctor for irregular bleeding?

Irregular bleeding can mean different things to different women. The important thing to know is what’s abnormal for you. The caring doctors at Eighth Avenue Obstetrics and Gynecology encourage you to come in for an evaluation if your abnormal bleeding is associated with any of the following issues.

  • Pelvic pain or cramping
  • Lightheadedness or fatigue
  • Bleeding after menopause
  • Bleeding between periods

You should also come into Eighth Avenue Obstetrics and Gynecology for an evaluation if your periods become so heavy you have to change your pad or tampon every hour or two or wake up frequently throughout the night to change them. 

What is the treatment for irregular bleeding?

Eighth Avenue Obstetrics and Gynecology has an on-site lab, as well as in-office ultrasound imaging available, so your doctor can get to the root of your irregular bleeding issues quickly. The practice provides any of the following treatments, depending on your diagnosis.

  • In-office hysteroscopy procedure
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Hormonal birth control, such as the pill
  • Endometrial ablation

In severe cases and if conservative measures aren’t helpful, your doctor could recommend a total or partial hysterectomy. But rest assured, no matter which type of irregular bleeding treatment is right for you, Eighth Avenue Obstetrics and Gynecology cares for you every step of the way.
