“Periods bother me a lot. Just three days back stopped, again started now. Always keeps me to use pads. A nuisance for my daily routines……………..”
“My periods are very irregular; I never had my periods in monthly schedule! I don’t know when it comes! When it stops!! “

       This abnormal uterine bleeding is medically known as “Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding” (DUB), which affects most women. The main symptoms are prolonged and irregular menstrual bleeding. The bleeding may be irregular, spotting during the cycle, but sometimes the bleeding is so heavy that a woman can't participate in her normal day-to-day activities, such as work and exercise. Many who have suffered from dysfunctional uterine bleeding probably remember embarrassing incidents with stained clothing or bed sheets.

      Dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB) is heavy or irregular menstrual bleeding that is not caused by an underlying anatomical abnormality. Dysfunctional uterine bleeding occurs because of a hormone imbalance in the body. There will not be any specific medical condition such as polyps or uterine fibroids, cancer or complications of pregnancy.

What happens?

      A woman's normal hormonal cycle depends upon a delicate balance between a number of hormones. There are many possible causes for hormone imbalance that may result in dysfunctional uterine bleeding. For example, if a woman fails to ovulate her ovary won't receive a cue to produce a hormone called Progestrone. Progestrone is needed to regulate the uterine lining called endometrium, which is discarded during menstruation. Without Progestrone, the endometrium keeps growing until it starts to break down and is shed as a very heavy uterine bleeding. The endometrium may also shed incompletely and irregularly, and bleeding becomes irregular or prolonged. Lack of ovulation is a major cause of dysfunctional uterine bleeding in women resulting in excessive bleeding and infertility. Very heavy periods may cause anaemia; you feel physically drained and horn out extremely.

DUB can results in the following menstrual patterns:

       Polymenorrhea (frequent, regular periods that occur less than every 21 days)

       Hypermenorrhea (excessively heavy bleeding during a normal-length period)

       Menorrhagia (prolonged or excessive bleeding lasting longer than a week that occurs at regular intervals)

       Metrorrhagia (periods that occur at irregular intervals, or frequent bleeding of various amounts, though not       heavy)

       Menometrorrhagia (frequent, excessive, and prolonged bleeding that occurs at irregular intervals)

       Menorrhagia is results from dysfunctional uterine bleeding; another frequent cause of menorrhagia is uterine fibroids. Together, hormone imbalances and fibroids account for about 80% of menorrhagia cases. Other causes include endometrial cancer, polyps, thyroid conditions and the blood diseases.

Treatment


      Dysfunctional uterine bleeding is being treated with hormonal preparations, which results in adverse effects. Homoeopathy could serve best to root out the inner pathophysiological changes. Many anovulatory cycles had become ovulatory cycles, thus yielding a good channel for easy conception. Abnormal endometrial patterns also reversed to normal.
