Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Symptoms of dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB) include:
Most menstrual blood is lost in the first 3 days of the period. So excessive blood loss is possible without having exceptionally long periods.
The symptoms of DUB can also be signs of another, more serious condition with similar symptoms. If your abnormal vaginal bleeding is undiagnosed, see your doctor.
Dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB) occurs most often before age 20 and after age 40.
No matter what your age, see your doctor if you have irregular vaginal bleeding.
