Often, the causes of abnormal uterine bleeding aren’t harmful to your health and can be easily treated. If your irregular bleeding is caused by hormonal issues, your doctor may prescribe you hormonal birth control to balance out your levels. This could include:
- Birth control pills
- Birth control patch
- Hormone containing IUD
The additional hormones found in these birth control medications balance out your abnormal uterine bleeding symptoms
Other common treatments include gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists (GnRH) to shrink fibroids or anti-inflammatory medications to reduce menstrual bleeding. For more serious cases of bleeding, your doctor might suggest invasive procedures, such as:
- Endometrial ablation
- Myomectomy or uterine artery embolization
However, these are only implemented in more severe cases, and your doctor works with you to try other non-invasive methods to regulate your uterine bleeding first.
