Too frequent periods, missed periods, spotting or bouts of heavy bleeding and clotting usually occur due to underlying hormonal imbalance within your body which hormonal imbalance can be treated easily. Normal vaginal bleeding occurs as a result of cyclic hormonal changes. The ovaries would be the main source of female hormones, which control the introduction of female body characteristics such as the breasts, physique, and the body hair. The hormones also regulate the menstrual period. The ovary, or female gonad, is just one of a set of reproductive glands in females. They are located in the pelvis, one on both sides of the uterus. Each ovary is one of the shape and size of an almond. The ovaries produce eggs and feminine hormones. During each monthly menstrual cycle, an egg is released in one ovary. The egg travels from the ovary through a Fallopian tube towards the uterus.
There are many important reasons that menorrhagia should be evaluated with a doctor. First, menorrhagia may cause a lady substantial emotional distress and physical symptoms, such as severe cramping . Second, the blood loss is really so severe it causes a dangerously lowered blood count (anemia), be responsible for medical complications and symptoms such as dizziness and fainting. Third, there can be dangerous causes of menorrhagia that require more urgent treatment.
However, there are lots of causes of menorrhagia, in most women, the specific reason for menorrhagia isn't found even after a full medical evaluation. These women have been demonstrated to have dysfunctional uterine bleeding. Although no specific reason for the abnormal vaginal bleeding is found in women with dysfunctional uterine bleeding, there are treatments open to reduce the severity of the problem.
A woman that has irregular menstrual periods requires a physical examination with a special focus on the thyroid, breast, and pelvic area. During the pelvic examination, the doctor tries to detect cervical polyps or any unusual masses within the uterus or ovaries.
A Pap smear is also completed to eliminate cervical cancer. As the Pap smear has been obtained, samples may be taken from the cervix to check for the presence of infections such as chlamydia or gonorrhea.
A blood count might be done to rule out a minimal blood count (anemia) caused by excessive hemorrhaging.
If something in the patient medical background or physical examination raises a doctors suspicion, tests to rule out certain blood clotting disorders might be done.
Sometimes, a blood sample is going to be tested to judge thyroid function, liver function, or kidney function abnormalities.
A blood test for progesterone levels or daily body temperature charting may be recommended to verify that the woman ovulates.
If the doctor suspects the ovaries are failing, for example with menopause, blood levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) might be tested.
Additional blood hormone tests are done when the doctor suspects polycystic ovary, or maybe excessive hair regrowth exists.
A pelvic ultrasound is often performed based on the woman's medical history and pelvic examination.
Treatment for irregular vaginal bleeding depends on the underlying cause. Following the cause is decided, a doctor decides if treatment methods are actually necessary. Sometimes, all that is needed is perfect for dangerous causes to become ruled out and to determine the irregular vaginal bleeding doesn't bother the woman enough to warrant medication or treatment. If thyroid, liver, kidney, or blood clotting problems are discovered, treatment methods are targeted at these conditions.
If the cause of the bleeding is lack of ovulation, doctors may prescribe either progesterone to be taken at regular intervals, or perhaps an oral contraceptive, containing progesterone, to attain an effective hormonal balance. Such treatment dramatically decreases the risk of uterine cancer in women who don't ovulate.
If the reason for irregular vaginal bleeding is a precancerous alternation in the liner from the uterus, progesterone medications might be prescribed to reduce the buildup of precancerous uterine lining tissues so that they can avoid surgery.
When a woman has been without menses for less than six months and is bleeding irregularly, the cause may be menopausal transition. In this transition, a lady may also be offered a dental contraceptive to establish a far more regular bleeding pattern, to supply contraception until she completes menopause, and also to relieve hot flashes. A lady who is discovered to be menopausal as the cause of her irregular bleeding may also receive menopause counseling if she has troubling symptoms.
If the cause of irregular vaginal bleeding is polyps or any other benign growths, these are sometimes removed surgically to manage bleeding because they can't be treated with medication.
If the reason for bleeding is infection, antibiotics are essential. Bleeding while pregnant requires urgent evaluation by an obstetrician. Endometriosis can be treated with medications and/or laparoscopy.
Sometimes, the cause of excessive bleeding is not apparent after completion of testing (dysfunctional uterine bleeding). In these cases, oral contraceptives can improve cycle control and lessen bleeding.
If bleeding is excessive and cannot be controlled by medication, surgery called dilation and curettage (D&C) may be necessary. In addition to alleviating the excessive bleeding, the D&C provides additional information that can eliminate abnormalities from the lining of the uterus.
Occasionally, a hysterectomy is necessary when hormonal medications cannot control excessive bleeding. However, unless the reason is pre-cancerous or cancerous, this surgery should only be an option after other solutions happen to be tried.
Many new procedures are now being designed to treat certain types of irregular vaginal bleeding. For example, research is underway to evaluate techniques that selectively block the blood vessels active in the bleeding. These newer methods might be less complicated choices for some patients so that as they are further evaluated they'll likely become more accessible.
Please consult a good gynecologist and get the above mentioned investigation done.
Please do not hesitate if you have any further query.
