Dr. Martin Fielder
Obstetrics & Gynecology
In brief: Irregular bleeding
Irregular bleeding (sometimes called dysfunctional uterine bleeding) is very common.
Many different things can cause it, from growths in the uterus (fibroids/polyps) to missed/delayed ovulation. An examination, sometimes with blood testing is done to evaluate and plan possible treatment. Sometimes a change in medications (like ocps) are in order.
