Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding


Dysfunctional uterine bleeding is a type of irregular bleeding from the uterus. For example, your periods may be less than 21 days or more than 35 days apart. They may last longer than 7 days, or they may be very heavy. This type of bleeding isn't serious, but it can be annoying and can disrupt your life.
