Vaginal Bleeding (cont.)

Medical Treatment

Patient Comments

For hormonal irregularities, effective treatments for dysfunctional uterine bleeding usually involve the use of prescription hormones such as birth control pills to help in the coordination of the menstrual cycle. A specialist such as a gynecologist usually starts this type of treatment. The doctor should check for another cause of bleeding if the patient does not respond to hormonal treatment. If other causes (such as infections or bleeding disorders) are found, treatment is directed toward the underlying cause.
