Abnormal Uterine Bleeding

Symptoms and Signs of Abnormal Uterine Bleeding

Signs of dysfunctional uterine bleeding may include vaginal bleeding or spotting between periods, periods that occur fewer than 28 days or more than 35 days apart, changes in the time intervals between periods each month, heavier bleeding (e.g., passing large clots or soaking through a tampon every hour for two or three hours in a row) or bleeding lasting longer than seven days. If a woman has lost a lot of blood, she may also feel symptoms of anemia, including fatigue.

In addition, if your abnormal uterine bleeding is linked to hormonal imbalances or changes, your may experience symptoms of hirsutism (or excessive body-hair growth in a male pattern), hot flashes, mood swing, and vaginal tenderness and dryness.
