Do you find that you bleed abnormally heavy on your periods, or for longer than normal? Do you notice spotting or bleeding when you’re not on your period? These issues are often considered abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB), an issue characterized by random bleeding from the uterus. This issue can develop in women who are menstruating and those who have entered menopause. If you’re concerned about the heaviness of your period or random spotting, our team at Cape Family Medical Clinic can help you find the answer. Contact our team in Cape Girardeau, MO to receive a comprehensive evaluation.
Our providers have helped many women who experience excessive uterine bleeding during or outside of their period. We will perform a thorough examination to figure out the cause of your heavy bleeding and form a treatment plan to address the issue. AUB can be caused by hormonal imbalance, uterine growths (such as fibroids or polyps), cancer, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), birth control, a thickened uterine wall, and more. In fact, this issue can sometimes be a symptom of one of these more severe problems. If you find that you bleed excessively, it’s important to have this addressed as soon as possible.
