I am Dr. Indu Taneja, senior consultant and head of the department gynae and obstetrician, Fortis Escorts Hospital, Faridabad. Today I will talk about abnormal uterine bleeding. The normal cycle is for 3-5 days and cycle recurs after 25-35 days. If the bleeding is more than 5-6 days or if the periods happens before 20 days or happening late after 35 days, it is considered as abnormal. In a young age, it is very common. Most likely because of hormonal issues or PCOD. Abnormality in the bleeding at middle age or reproductive age can be because of abnormality in the pregnancy or abortions. Today I will talk about abnormality in the bleeding in pre-menopausal age.
So, it should not be taken lightly. If bleeding is heavy or frequent, do not take it lightly and consult a doctor immediately. 40 ki age me periods me abnormality hoti hai to logon me myth hai ki periods band hone vale hain islia periods me disturbance hai. But ye normal nhi hai. Apko iske lia doctor se hi consult krna jruri hai. Jab periods band hone vale hote hain to periods delayed hote hain. 2-3 months ke gap me aate hain. Or fir band ho jate hain. Agar period 1 saal tak band rehte hain to use hum menopause kehte hain. Agar apke periods jldi aa rhen hain ya jyada aa rhen hain to this should not be taken lightly. Immediately doctor ke pas jana chaiye. Sabse important test isme ultrasound hota hai.
Is se hume pta chal jata hai ki hormones ka problem hai ya koi massa ho rha hai ya fir tumour or fibroid hai. Jo bhi cause hota hai, uska treatment is available which can be easily done through laparoscopy surgery. Hysteroscopy ke through isko treat kia jata hai. Isme rest ya precautions ki jrurat nhi hoti hai and patient bilkul thik ho jata hai. Islia 40 years ki age ke baad koi bhi abnormal bleeding hai to ise lightly na len or doctor ko dikhayein and treatment len.
