Symptoms: Bleeding

 

 

Doctor: HelloThanks for the queryConsidering your age and bleeding pattern, it could be due to causes like fibroids, adenomy osis, endometrial hyperplasia, pill side effects and hormonal imbalances, and a perimenopausal bleeding. Pregnancy may also be a possibility but unlikely. You must consult a gynecologist for an examination and investigations like blood, urine, liver and kidney function test.Also, an ultrasound of the abdomen and pelvis needs to be done. If it is a fibroid , hormone therapy or surgical removal may be options. The doctor may wish to put you on medicines which stop bleeding immediately. A pregnancy test may be done to rule out the sameHope this helpedRegards
