Hi there

Bleeding from your vagina or uterus other than your normal menstrual cycle is considered abnormal and should be checked by your doctor. This includes unusually heavy bleeding with your period, spotting between periods, severe pain during your period, and bleeding past the date your period should stop. If you’re reached menopause and no longer have menstrual periods, any bleeding is abnormal.

If you’re younger than 20 or older than 40, you’re at higher risk for abnormal bleeding because hormone imbalances are common at the beginning and end of your reproductive life. Other causes of bleeding include

• polyps

• fibroids

• tumors

• infections in the uterus

In teenagers and young women; pregnancy can cause abnormal bleeding. Factors that can increase your risk of abnormal bleeding include • obesity • excessive exercising • stress

See your doctor if you’re

• passing blood clots the size of a golf ball or larger

• soaking a pad or tampon every hour

• feeling dizzy, weak, or feverish

• if you have severe abdominal pain

• your period doesn’t stop when expected

Be sure to tell your doctor if you could be pregnant.

Please visit a doctor for correct diagnosis. Good luck
