Abnormal Uterine Bleeding

If you experience abnormal uterine bleeding in the form of lengthy, intense, or frequent periods or spotting throughout the month, Every Woman’s Ob Gyn can help. We offer the women of Stockbridge, GA, multiple options for treatment, including NovaSure endometrial ablation.

Causes of Abnormal Uterine Bleeding

The most frequent cause of abnormal uterine bleeding is hormone imbalance, which is most often experienced by teenagers and women experiencing perimenopause. Pregnancy is another common cause of abnormal bleeding. However, rarer, more severe causes include cancer, infection, polyps, fibroids, and thyroid problems.

Treatments for Abnormal Uterine Bleeding

Depending on the cause of your abnormal bleeding, your lifestyle, and your desire for children in the future, we offer a number of treatment options to address the bleeding.

If the cause is hormonal, we will discuss your other health factors and prescribe a form of hormonal birth control, which will thin out the uterine lining and most likely resolve the issue. If weight is a contributing factor to the hormonal imbalance, we will also discuss solutions for weight loss to correct the hormonal issue on a long-term scale.

We also offer minimally invasive procedures like NovaSure ablation to address abnormal bleeding. Endometrial ablation is a good option if you do not wish to get pregnant in the future, as it destroys the uterine lining and significantly decreases your likelihood of getting pregnant. Note, however, that this is not a form of birth control, and you may still need to use protection to avoid pregnancy.

We also give referrals for any procedures that we do not perform in-office. However, we will still work with you to establish a treatment and recovery plan, no matter which form of treatment you choose.
