Hormonal abnormality: The causes of dysfunctional uterine bleeding are either hormonal or structural (like a fibroid). At your age I would strongly suspect a hormonal problem and not a fibroid. The ultrasound will rule out (or in) the structural abnormality. Do you have PCOS? If the ultrasound is normal your doctor will likely run multiple tests to determine what the hormonal problem is.
