Treatment for Vagina bleeding

    Abnormal vaginal bleeding between periods is also called intermenstrual bleeding, spotting, and metrorrhagia. When bleeding occurs between normal periods, there are many possible causes. While some causes may be easy to treat, others can indicate a serious underlying condition. Whether you notice spotting or heavier bleeding between periods, it’s important to see your doctor for testing, diagnosis, and treatment options.

WHAT IS ABNORMAL VAGINA BLEEDING?

     Abnormal vaginal bleeding has various causes, including fibroids, endometrial polyps, an infection of the uterus, pregnancy, miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, retained products of conception following pregnancy, or cancers of the uterus including endometrial and cervical cancers. There are several important reasons that menorrhagia should be evaluated by a doctor. Menorrhagia can cause a woman substantial emotional distress and physical symptoms, such as severe cramping.

When to see a doctor?

     If a woman is having abnormal vaginal bleeding with other symptoms, such as lightheadedness, severe abdominal pain, or fevers, she should be evaluated as soon as possible. Another possible reason for abnormal bleeding is a physical problem with your uterus. Millions of women have fibroids - noncancerous tumors that grow in the muscles of the wall of the uterus. A polyp is another kind of growth that can form in the lining of your uterus. And a condition called adenomyosis causes the endometrium to grow into the tissue of the uterus

     Talk to our doctor for any time if post coital bleeding is severe, frequent, or continues for more than a few hours after intercourse.Also speak if post coital bleeding is accompanied by additional symptoms including;

  • nausea, vomiting, or lack of appetite

  • stinging or burning when urinating or during intercourse

  • lower back pain

  • unexplained fatigue and weakness

  • abnormally pale skin

  • bladder or bowel symptoms

  • If you're pregnant, contact our doctor immediately if you notice vaginal bleeding.

How does it treated?

    This will depend on the cause of the abnormal vagina bleeding - if a chronic illness or a blood disorder is at the root of your symptoms. There are many ways to help treat it. Some are meant to return the menstrual cycle to normal. Others are used to reduce bleeding or to stop monthly periods. Each treatment works for some women but not others. Our gynecologist will do a physical exam and may recommend one or more tests or procedures includes;

 Pap test - In this test, cells from your cervix are collected and tested for infection, inflammation or changes that may be cancerous or may lead to cancer.

  Ultrasound -  This imaging method uses sound waves to produce images of your uterus, ovaries and pelvis.

 Blood tests - A sample of your blood may be evaluated for iron deficiency (anemia) and other conditions, such as thyroid disorders or blood-clotting abnormalities.

Medications for treatment 

     If the cause of irregular vaginal bleeding is polyps or other benign growths, these are sometimes removed surgically to control bleeding because they cannot be treated with medication. A woman who is found to be menopausal as the cause of her irregular bleeding may also receive menopause counseling if she has troubling symptoms.

     Occasionally, a hysterectomy is necessary when hormonal medications cannot control excessive bleeding. However, unless the cause is pre-cancerous or cancerous, this surgery should only be an option after other solutions have been tried.

mail  But it’s a good idea to see a doctor and try to find out what the cause is. You should discuss the benefits and risks of the different options to our doctor including any impact on future fertility from some treatment.

Our doctor will most likely ask about your medical history and menstrual cycles. You may be asked to keep a diary of bleeding and nonbleeding days, including notes on how heavy your flow was and how much sanitary protection you needed to control it. For more information you may consult here in our website at the right side of your screen, For Free! Or call us in our contact number (02) 356 - 0262  for you to set an appointment.


Note: Treatment results may vary depending on the condition of each patient. Therefore, patients need to go to a specialized clinic for a direct consultation with a doctor. Do not take any medicine unless prescribed by a doctor.
