Treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding

The treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding depends not only on its underlying cause but also the woman’s age and her family status regarding children. The treatment modalities include hormonal medication and surgery.

Hormonal medication may help in maintaining hormonal balance thereby preventing abnormal bleeding from the uterus. Such medicine may be given in tablet form, injections, vaginal creams for topical applications or via intra uterine devices. Antibiotics are recommended if the bleeding is accompanied by fever and infection.

Surgical treatment modality includes hysteroscopy, hysterectomy and endometrial ablation. Hysteroscopy is indicated in the treatment of uterine fibroids and polyps. Hysterectomy involves removal of uterus and its appendages. This kind of surgery is not advisable for women of reproductive age since the patient cannot opt for pregnancy after this surgery.

Endometrial ablation destroys the uterine lining, thereby controlling excess bleeding. Sometimes abnormal uterine bleeding is self limiting and returns to normal within a few months. Finally, the underlying cause of bleeding needs to be correctly diagnosed and managed effectively.
