Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding - How To Diagnose It?

As a woman goes through life, her hormonal levels change quite dramatically and this can be quite impactful. However, sometimes the impact is not a good one! This can be said to be the cause when it comes to dysfunctional uterine bleeding. This sort of bleeding occurs when the levels the hormones are at cause the menstrual cycle of the woman to become erratic.

Understanding the Diagnosis
When it comes to the diagnosis of an issue such as this, the process must include the ruling out of other more serious problems such as fibroids, a miscarriage, or even cancer which has affected the cervix or the uterus of the woman.

Treatment options
A doctor, post-ruling out these situations, will inform the patient, if dysfunctional uterine bleeding is what is being experienced. When it comes to the matter of how dysfunctional uterine bleeding is to be dealt with, it can be said that the best thing which is to be done is to sit down with the doctor and have a comprehensive chat with respect to what the solutions which are available at hand are.

  1. One of these solutions happens to be hormone treatment. However, it is to be kept in mind that this is usually only made use of in order to stop dysfunctional uterine bleeding which is very severe.
  2. If the woman is not experiencing bleeding which is this bad, a good solution could be non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which are also known by their abbreviation, which is NSAIDs. Drugs such as ibuprofen are used quite widely when it comes to treating the issue of dysfunctional uterine bleeding. That being said, the matter of the best solution is something which is very subjective and the best judge of the same is only the doctor who has been apprised of all the facts which pertain to the case at hand.
  3. It is only in extreme cases that the uterus as a whole is removed, a process which goes by the name of hysterectomy. This sort of solution is only recommended when a woman does not wish to have any more children.
  4. If a woman who has been experiencing the problem of dysfunctional uterine bleeding is aged between the years of 19 and 39, a good and apt solution would be a combination of low dose hormonal contraceptive treatment along with progestin therapy.

Dysfunctional uterine bleeding is something which can mar a woman’s daily life, but it really needs not to be the case!
