Abnormal Bleeding

There are many different reasons why women may have abnormal bleeding patterns. Some common causes are fibroids, polyps and adenomyosis. There are also other causes, therefore, it is important for patients to have a full evaluation to pinpoint the reason for the bleeding. Serving communities throughout the North Shore, our MIGS gynecologic surgeons can provide patients with a comprehensive evaluation and multiple treatment options.

Common symptoms of abnormal bleeding

Most women have regular periods that occur about once a month and last up to seven days. But some women can have abnormal bleeding patterns, such as:
  • Unpredictable bleeding patterns
  • Bleeding between periods
  • Very heavy periods
  • Periods lasting longer than seven days

Any of these abnormal bleeding patterns or changes in typical bleeding pattern should be evaluated.
