If you experience bleeding at times when it isn’t supposed to be your period, then that is abnormal vaginal bleeding. It can be:

  • Bleeding between periods.
  • Bleeding after sex.
  • Spotting anytime in the menstrual cycle.
  • Bleeding heavier or for more days than normal.
  • Bleeding after menopause.

There are many possible causes for abnormal bleeding. For teens and women close to menopause, changes in hormones can lead to long periods and irregular cycles. Other causes may include:

  • Uterine fibroids
  • Infection in the reproductive organs
  • Cancer
  • Extreme stress
  • Significant weight loss or gain

Abnormal bleeding can still be treated even if it is caused by hormonal changes. It’s best to speak to your healthcare provider if you experience abnormal bleeding.
