Polymenorrhoea: cyclic bleeding where the cycle is reduced to 21 days or less and remains constant at that frequency (epimenorrhoea) Definitions : Definitions Metrorrhagia: Irregular, acyclical bleeding from the uterus. Amount of bleeding is variable. Bleeding from any part of genital tract is included under this heading in clinical practice. Oligomenorrhoea: Menstrual bleeding occurring more than 35 days apart and which remains constant at that frequency Definitions : Definitions Hypomenorrhoea: when the menstrual bleeding is unduly scanty and lasts for less than 2 days. Dysfunctional Uterine bleeding (DUB): Abnormal uterine bleeding without any clinically detectable organic pelvic pathology- tumour, inflammation or pregnancy. Common Causes of Abnormal Uterine or Vaginal Bleeding : Common Causes of Abnormal Uterine or Vaginal Bleeding Abnormal menstrual bleeding. Menorrhagia Polymenorrhoea Metrorrhagia Oligomenorrhoea Postmenopausal, Precocious, delayed menopause Non-menstrual Foreign Body Urethral caruncles Genital malignancies Postcoital Intermenstrual Abortion Breakthrough Bleeding Menorrhagia : Menorrhagia Symptom of underlying pathology Pelvic Pathology: Congestion, increased surface area or hyperplasia of the endometrium Fibroid uterus, Adenomyosis, Pelvic Endometriosis, IUCD, Chronic tubo-ovarian mass, granulosa cell tumour of ovary. Common causes: DUB, Fibroid, Adenomyosis, Chronic PID Menorrhagia : Menorrhagia Systemic: Liver Dysfunction, Endocrine: Hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism Blood Dyscrasias: ITP, leukaemias, von Willebrand’s disease Functional: disturbed hypothalamo-pituitary axis. Menorrhagia : Menorrhagia Long duration of flow, passage of big clots, use of increased no of sanitary pads, pallor, low Hb% Treatment: Definitive treatment of the cause of menorrhagia as the case maybe, eg: fibroid: myomectomy or hysterectomy, removal of IUCD, treatment of hypothyroidism. Polymenorrhoea : Polymenorrhoea Causes: dysfunctional, during adolescence, preceding menopause and following delivery/abortion. ?hyperstimulation of ovary by pituitary gonadotrophins Ovarian hyperaemia: PID, ovarian endometriosis Treatment: Hormonal Metrorrhagia : Metrorrhagia Causes: DUB- adolescence, following childbirth/abortion and perimenopause Submucous fibroid Uterine polyp Carcinoma cervix and endometrial carcinoma Contact bleeding: Ca cervix, mucous polyp of cervix, vascular erosion of cervix esp during pregnancy, infections: chlamydia metrorrhagia : metrorrhagia Causes of Intermenstrual bleeding: urethral caruncle, ovular bleeding, breakthrough bleeding (pill use), IUCD in utero, decubitus ulcer (prolapse) Treatment: directed to underlying cause Malignancy to be excluded prior to any definitive treatment. Oligomenorrhoea : Oligomenorrhoea Common causes: Age related- adolescence, preceding menopause Weight- obesity Stress & exercise related Endocrine: PCOD, hyperprolactinaemia, hyperthyroidism Androgen producing tumours- ovarian, adrenal Tubercular endometritis: late cases. Hypomenorrhoea : Hypomenorrhoea Local causes: uterine synechiae or endometrial tuberculosis Endocrinal: oral contraceptives Thyroid dysfunction Perimenopausal Systemic: malnutrition EVALUATION AND DIAGNOSIS OF ABNORMAL UTERINE BLEEDING : EVALUATION AND DIAGNOSIS OF ABNORMAL UTERINE BLEEDING Differential diagnosis Reproductive tract pathology: cervicitis, cervical neoplasia, endometritis, endometrial polyps, endometrial hyperplasia, uterine leiomyomas, adenomyosis, uterine sarcomas, ovarian neoplasms (estrogen producing) EVALUATION AND DIAGNOSIS OF ABNORMAL UTERINE BLEEDING : EVALUATION AND DIAGNOSIS OF ABNORMAL UTERINE BLEEDING Medications: Estrogen administration Oral contraceptives Progesterone-only contraceptives Aspirin Anticoagulants Psychotropic medications Trauma Foreign Body Lacerations Intrauterine device .
