Abnormal Uterine Bleeding - Causes and Treatments!

Abnormal Uterine Bleeding - Causes and Treatments!

Are you experiencing abnormal uterine bleeding? The term Abnormal uterine bleeding is used when the menstrual period doesn't conform to normal pattern. Any menstrual cycle, which has interval of less than 21 days or longer than 35 days, the duration is less than 2 days or more than 7 days, the flow is more or less than normal and there is bleeding apart from the menstrual period is an abnormal form of uterine bleeding

Causes of Abnormal Uterine Bleeding: 
The various causes of abnormal uterine bleeding are as follows: 

  1. One of the main causes is hormonal imbalance, as the balance between female hormones, estrogen and progesterone gets disrupted. This balance is required for the regulation and development of endometrium (lining of uterus). Proper development of endometrium is disrupted because of the hormonal imbalance resulting in abnormal bleeding. 
  2. Uterine fibroids, which are non cancerous tumours, may lead to prolonged and excessive uterine bleeding. 
  3. Polyps are small benign developments on the uterus lining which cause abnormal bleeding. They mostly occur because of hormonal imbalance. 
  4. Adenomyosis is a condition which develops when the endometrial glands get embedded in the uterine muscle, leading to excessive uterine bleeding and pain during menstruation
  5. Using intrauterine devices or IUDs also may cause abnormal uterine bleeding. Uterine cancers, ovarian cancers and cervical conditions may be responsible as well. 
  6. Inherited bleeding disorder is another likely cause. 
  7. Several drugs e.g. some painkillers, drugs used to curb inflammation and drugs used in coagulation disorders can cause abnormal uterine bleeding. 
  8. Medical conditions such as pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, liver and kidney disease or thyroid problems can also cause abnormal uterine bleeding. 
  9. One should exclude Ectopic pregnancy during management of Abnormal uterine bleeding. 

Treatment: 
Treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding, depends upon the cause of bleeding and the patient’s age. 

  1. Medications: Several medicines are used for the treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding. Hormonal medicines and birth control pills are used to improve the regularity of periods. There are some haemostatic drugs which can be used to manage excessive uterine bleeding. 
  2. Surgery: In many cases, a woman has to undergo a surgery for the removal of polyps and fibroids, which cause excessive bleeding. Certain fibroids are removed via hysteroscopy. Other methods are by laparoscopy and by laparotomy ( by opening of abdomen). 
  3. Endometrial ablation: Endometrial ablation can be carried out to manage the bleeding. This treatment aims at permanent reduction of the excess bleeding. Hysterectomy has to be carried out when other treatments are unsuccessful. This is a major surgery and after it, a woman will no longer have periods. 

In case of abnormal uterine bleeding, you must consult a doctor as soon as possible. This will enable early treatment and prevent the development of further complications.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Intrauterine Devices(IUDs) - Know Its Different Types And Their Uses!

Intrauterine Devices(IUDs) - Know Its Different Types And Their Uses!

An IUD is usually a T-shaped plastic device wrapped in copper. It can also contain hormones. An IUD gets inserted into the uterus, and a plastic string is tied to one end of the IUD that hangs down via cervix, into the vagina. One can feel the IUD in place by feeling the string. The string is also used for the removal of an IUD. 

There are two major types of IUDs: 

Hormonal IUDs 
• This type of IUD releases Levonorgestrel, a progestin hormone. 
• A hormonal IUD is considered to be a little more effective than the other type of IUDs. 
• It usually prevents pregnancy for about five years. 

Copper IUD 
• This is the most common form of IUD in which a copper wire is wrapped around the stem of the IUD. 
• This form of IUD can stay in place for around three, five or ten years (depending upon type) and is considered to be an effective contraception method. Some Copper IUDs are semicircular in shape. 

How IUDs work? 
• Both forms of IUDs prevent the fertilisation by adversely affecting the local environment of uterine cavity and also eggs & sperms. 
• The uterine lining, where the fertilised egg implants itself and grows is also affected. 

Hormonal IUD 
• Hormonal IUDs work by preventing fertilization, which is carried out by adversely affecting sperms and making the mucus present in cervix sticky and thick. 
• This makes it difficult for sperm to reach the uterus. It also helps in keeping the endometrium or uterus lining from growing excessively thick. 
• The hormones present in this IUD reduce menstrual cramping and menstrual bleeding

Copper IUD 
• Copper is toxic for sperms. This type of IUD makes fallopian tubes and uterus produce certain fluids which adversely affect sperms. 
• White blood cells are contained in this fluid along with copper ions, prostaglandins, and enzymes. 

Insertion 
• IUDs can be inserted during any time when you are not pregnant or do not suffer from pelvic infections. However, it is preferable to insert it during or just after the menstrual period. 
• The insertion process of IUDs is simple and does not take much time. Usually, no local anaesthetic is used during the procedure. 
• The insertion of IUDs is easier in women who have delivered normally. 

Mild cramping and some amount of light bleeding or spotting are likely to be expected for a few days after the insertion of an IUD. You should avoid having sex, using tampons, or putting anything in your vagina for at least one day after the procedure. It is advisable for you to visit your doctor from time to time after the insertion procedure.

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease - A Serious Bacterial STD!!

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease - A Serious Bacterial STD!!

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, also known as PID, is characterized by an infection that occurs in woman's reproductive organs. Usually, this occurs as a result of complications arising from STD. The disease causes severe damage to the ovaries, fallopian tubes and the uterus. It is one of the major causes of infertility in women

Mode of infection- The cervix (the lower part of uterus), which is the entry to the body of the uterus has the function of stopping bacteria that are present in the vagina from spreading to other organs. Once infected by STD, the cervix can no longer perform its function effectively of preventing bacteria from spreading to other organs. PID develops when the infection spreads from cervix to the upper areas of the genital tract. 

There are certain factors which increase chances of being affected by PID: 

  • Being sexually active 
  • Already affected by one 
  • Past history of PID 
  • Having multiple sexual partners 

Symptoms- Women may experience pain while urinating and engaging in sexual intercourse, coupled with sore feeling in the stomach along with nausea. Abnormal vaginal discharge and a rise in body temperature are other symptoms. 

Treatment- Once the disease has been diagnosed by a doctor, a treatment plan is devised. The treatment options that you can avail of are: 

  1. Medications: If the symptoms are mild, then the doctor will prescribe antibiotic medications. Usually, the antibiotics are administered by mouth unless the symptoms are severe, when the drugs are administered by injection. Your partner may also require medications sometimes if you happen to be diagnosed with PID. 
  2. Surgery: Surgery may have to be recommended by the doctor in case of severe tissue inflammation and the presence of pus (abscess). The aim of surgery is to get rid of the abscess. 

In addition to the treatment methods, there are certain precautionary measures that one can adopt to be safe: 

  1. Have protected sex. 
  2. Try and stick to one sexual partner. 
  3. Visit your gynecologist for regular checkups.

Dear Magesh, Though there is no contraindication for intercourse if there are no complications in the ongoing pregnancy. However, the act should not inconvenience you and/or your wife. So, it is better to avoid it in case there is difficulty.

Ideally, one should wait for 6 weeks after delivery. The woman physically and mentally is not ready for it. But the act, usually, doesn't lead to any problem.

Dear Lybrate user, Ipill is an emergency contraceptive and should be used as an emergency only. Repeated intake is not advisable. Coming to your question, usually ipill is meant to be used for one act. At times, it acts. The chances that it will not act is more.
