Uterine Bleeding

What is Uterine Bleeding?

Heavy or frequent bleeding can be indicative of several different conditions. 

Our first priority will be to determine the cause for your bleeding which could include endometrial polyps, uterine fibroid tumors, adenomyosis, hormone imbalance, and endometrial hyperplasia. Once a diagnosis is determined, we will decide on the appropriate course of action including medication and/or surgical procedure.

Based on your history and/or test results, we may recommend a hysteroscopy, which is primarily a diagnostic procedure that can be performed in an outpatient or ambulatory setting with anesthesia. In some cases, this procedure also solves the bleeding problem. With hysteroscopy, a lighted tube is passed through the cervical canal and into the uterine cavity. The uterine cavity is filled with fluid and the entire uterine cavity can be seen. If a lesion is found, it may be removed under direct vision through the hysteroscope.

The diagnosis will be based on a thorough review of the patient’s medical history and a physical exam, which may include a pelvic ultrasound to look for uterine masses and to confirm that the ovaries are normal.

If heavy bleeding continues, we may recommend further interventions which may be surgical or non-surgical.
