Hello Anonymous,

Bleeding other than a normal menstrual period and even an abnormally heavy period can be great cause for alarm. The medical term for excessive or prolonged vaginal bleeding that occurs at the regular time of the menstrual cycle is known as menorrhagia. Metrorrhagia is the term used to refer to uterine bleeding at irregular intervals, particularly between the expected menstrual periods. Menometrorrhagia is the combination of the two, that is, excessive uterine bleeding, both at the usual time of menstrual periods and at other irregular intervals.

Up to 10% of women may experience dysfunctional uterine bleeding at one time or another, African American women tend to have more episodes.

An imbalance in the estrogen and progesterone levels can cause excessive vaginal bleeding.

If you are having other symptoms, such as lightheadedness, severe abdominal pain or fever, seek emergency medical treatment.

Beside a physical exam and pelvic exam, diagnostic tests such as a blood test to check for anemia, clotting series and thyroid levels, an ultrasound of the abdomen and pelvis, and an endometrial biopsy should be done.
