What to do if I have constant 'dysfunctional uterine bleeding' and my doctor won't do anything?

In brief: Second opinion

There are a number of reasons for abnormal uterine bleeding.
Each has different treatment options. If your doctor is truly not doing "anything", get a second opinion from an ObGyn or a Gyn Oncologist. After age 35, the risk of endometrial cancer starts going up. The good news is that this usually takes years, but even without pre-cancer (hyperplasia) or cancer, there is no reason to keep bleeding.
