Abnormal Uterine Bleeding
March 7, 2015
Abnormal uterine bleeding is irregular bleeding from the uterus. Periods that come more often than every 21 days, are farther apart than 35 days, or that last for longer than 7 days are considered abnormal (also called Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding). In most cases, this issue is not related to medical conditions. It is typically related to abnormal changes in hormone levels. At Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates, P.A. we can rule out medical conditions to confirm that patients have abnormal uterine bleeding, and we can offer treatment to help regulate hormones and periods.
Any abnormal menstrual bleeding should be brought to your gynecologist’s attention promptly so that a diagnosis can be made and an appropriate treatment plan implemented. Early intervention can prevent serious health problems from developing in the future, thus it should not be ignored. At Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates, P.A. our physicians and staff are committed to mixing excellent medical care with compassion and sensitivity. We care about our patients, and will go the extra mile to ensure that proper diagnosis is made. Our team of physicians has the training and experience necessary to effectively treat abnormal uterine bleeding. Medications, hormone therapy, and surgery are all options that will be considered on an individual basis for each patient. Protecting your health is our number one concern, and we are dedicated to providing you with the care you need.
If you have been having abnormal bleeding for three consecutive menstrual cycles or if you have any other type of gynecological concern, please contact Marietta OB-GYN Affiliates, P.A. today to schedule an appointment. We are currently accepting new patients, and we would be honored to serve you and help you achieve the health you deserve.
