Understanding fibroids and abnormal uterine bleeding
gt;gt; Sawson AsAsanie, M.D., MPH: My name is Sawson AsAsanie, and I'm the director of the Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Program at the University of Michigan. Today we're going to be talking about abnormal uterine bleeding, which is a very common condition that affects many women in their reproductive years. Abnormal bleeding is any type of bleeding that is irregular. That could be bleeding in between menstrual cycles, bleeding that is heavier than usual during menstrual cycles, bleeding after intercourse, or even bleeding after someone's gone through menopause.
There are many different causes of abnormal bleeding, and some might be due to hormonal changes, some might be due to structural abnormalities such as lesions within the uterus, and others might be due to systemic medical conditions. When a woman has a menstrual cycle that occurs greater than 35 days from start to start, less than 21 days from start to start, or bleeding in between their menses, after intercourse, or after menopause, these are all indications that something might be abnormal, and she should be examined by her physician. Uterine fibroids are a common cause of abnormal bleeding, and the lifetime risk.
Of developing uterine fibroids is approximately 70 to 80 percent. Uterine fibroids are benign tumors of the uterus and can cause many symptoms such as abnormal uterine bleeding, which can be either heavy or irregular, pelvic pain, andor pelvic pressure related to the large size of fibroids. However, not all women with uterine fibroids have symptoms, and the decision to proceed with treatment for uterine fibroids really depends on whether or not those symptoms are bothersome. If you think that your bleeding symptoms are abnormal or bothersome,.
Or if you suspect that you might have uterine fibroids, you should talk to your to be evaluated and to see what treatment options might be best for you.
