Sometimes, abnormal uterine bleeding may be a sign of uterine cancer or cervical cancer, but this is rare.

How is abnormal uterine bleeding diagnosed?

You can expect to discuss your medical history and the pattern of your menstruation with your practitioner at Artemis Center for Menstrual Disorders They perform a physical exam and may recommend an ultrasound to look for cysts or growths. Depending on what they find, you may need a type of diagnostic procedure called hysteroscopy.

Artemis Center for Menstrual Disorders offers an in-office hysteroscopy to make your diagnosis faster and more efficient and recommend the right treatment for your individual situation.

How does hysteroscopy help with abnormal uterine bleeding?

Artemis Center for Menstrual Disorders provides hysteroscopy to both diagnose and treat uterine problems, including abnormal uterine bleeding. A hysteroscope is a slim, lighted imaging device. When inserted into your uterus via your vagina, the tool sends images from the inside of your uterus to a computer screen. With a hysteroscope, your practitioner can see growths, such as uterine polyps, and remove them during your procedure.

Are there other treatments for abnormal uterine bleeding?

If your bleeding isn’t due to a growth, endometrial ablation may be an option to minimize or stop the heavy bleeding. The minimally invasive procedure works by removing your uterine lining, which is the source of your heavy flow. Artemis Center for Menstrual Disorders offers this procedure on-site for your convenience.
