Bleeding Disorders

Summary: Most women experience irregular bleeding at some time in their lives. Usually it’s harmless. However, it can be inconvenient, irritating, and for some, painful. Fortunately, we often find the cause and can almost always help.

Causes of Change in Bleeding Pattern

The changes may come from irregular ovulation, the use of hormonal contraception or spiral, inflammation (such as chlamydia), stress or excessive exercise.

Forms of Bleeding Disorders

Irregular bleeding may also indicate bleeding disorders, and they often fall into one of these categories:

  • Very heavy bleeding
  • Rare bleeding or cessation of menstruation
  • Intermediate bleeding
  • Bleeding that lasts longer than normal
  • Bleeding occurring more often than every 3 weeks
  • Bleeding occurring after sex or between menstrual periods

The first step to take is to contact the gynecologist if you experience bleeding that is tiring or you are concerned.

Irregular bleeding during menopause

Because hormone levels change in menopause, some degree of irregular bleeding is a common and natural consequence. However, please note that it may also be a sign of something else and you should contact your gynecologist if you notice any of the changes mentioned above.

Bleeding after menopause

After menopause, you should not bleed. If you do, talk to a gynecologist.
