Abnormal or Heavy Bleeding

Many women experience abnormal bleeding at some point in their life and it can occur at any age. It is a common cause of pain, fatigue, and disruption of daily life. It is important to see your GYN doctor when abnormal bleeding:

  • Is a lot heavier than you’ve experienced for more days than you normally do
  • Occurs between your periods
  • Occurs outside of your period, or your period is longer than 35 days, or is shorter than 21 days (you get your period more often)
  • Is during pregnancy
  • Is after menopause
  • Occurs after sex
