Any time that your periods vary from what you’ve come to expect as normal, you should schedule an appointment with your OB/GYN.
There are numerous causes of abnormal bleeding, many of which are harmless. Potential causes include:
Once your gynecologist determines the cause of your abnormal bleeding, there are multiple treatment options available.
Some women have excellent results with medications that regulate monthly cycles, address hormonal imbalances, or reduce blood loss. For others, dilation and curettage procedures help by removing tissue from your uterine lining.
For women who don't plan to have more children, NovaSure can be an effective treatment option. The procedure works by using a special type of netting to deliver precisely controlled radiofrequency energy to the lining of your uterus. The result is the elimination of your uterine lining, which drastically reduces menstrual bleeding.
Boro Park features an elite surgical center that can handle many procedures in-house.
