Are There Options Besides Hysterectomy for Abnormal Uterine Bleeding?

From the Treatment Alternatives Articles List

Hysterectomy for excessive abnormal uterine bleeding?What causes abnormal uterine bleeding and what are the treatment options? Is hysterectomy my only option?


Abnormal or dysfunctional bleeding can be caused by hormone issues, polyps in the uterus and/or cervix, endometrial hyperplasia, and other conditions including fibroids, adenomyosis, pelvic infection, and uterine or cervical cancers.

Bleeding can range from light to heavy. It may be simply an inconvenience or it may interrupt your daily activities, especially if it's associated with pelvic pain and uterine cramping. Fortunately, there are several treatment options, both surgical and non-surgical.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options
  • Hormones to regulate ovulation and menstruating for hormone related bleeding
  • Progestin-containing IUD (Intrauterine device) for endometrial hyperplasia.

Surgical Treatment Options
A hysterectomy is used to treat abnormal uterine bleeding only when other approaches have failed.
