Abnormal Bleeding Q & A

Why do I have abnormal bleeding?

Abnormal bleeding can stem from a number of issues, including a hormonal imbalance. If you’re experiencing abnormal bleeding, it could be related to:

  • Pregnancy issues like ectopic pregnancy
  • Uterine fibroids or polyps
  • Ovulation dysfunction
  • Endometriosis

It could even be your intrauterine device (IUD) that’s to blame. While rare, occasionally, abnormal bleeding is linked to certain types of cancer, which is why it’s important to get your OB/GYN involved early on.

When should I see a doctor for abnormal bleeding?
