Increased Uterine Bleeding

What is Increased Uterine Bleeding?

Increased Uterine Bleeding; The uterus or uterine organ basically consists of two layers. A thin Endometrium layer on the inside and a thick layer of muscle on the outside. Due to hormonal changes in women of reproductive age, the inner layer thickens every month and then shed, causing menstrual bleeding or menstruation. Although each woman has her own menstrual cycle, excessive or decreased bleeding may be seen in some periods due to various reasons. This condition is called abnormal uterine bleeding.

In this situation, which may be different in every age group, laboratory tests, gynecological examination and ultrasound are used to make a diagnosis. Physicians can take a biopsy of the uterine wall if they need it.
