Symptoms?: I assume this was a result of an endometrial biopsy done for heavy or irregular bleeding. Should be easily regulated with hormones such as low dose birth control pills. Also may be associated with hormone imbalance due to obesity, etc, in which case improved diet and weight loss may help. Feel sure your doctor will discuss this with you. Read more
