While these symptoms may make your daily life uncomfortable, troublesome, or inconvenient, it should never be shrugged off or overlooked. Your health is extremely important, and if you have abnormally heavy menstrual bleeding, it should definitely be examined to determine the cause, and in order to develop a treatment plan to solve the issue.

A variety of issues can be at the root of abnormal bleeding, and Dr. Shakiba has treated this problem for many women. From locating the source of the problem to diagnosing it, and creating the correct treatment plan, Dr. Shakiba is well-versed in these types of disorders. The cause of abnormal bleeding can be related to hormonal imbalances, a congenital problem, infection, pathophysiology, or even something anatomically abnormal, and each issue can effectively be treated with excellent results through Dr. Shakiba’s expertise in urogynecology.

What to Pay Attention to

Every woman’s body is different, however certain signs are clear indications of something being wrong. Abnormal bleeding is considered to be bleeding that occurs between periods. There are many things that can cause it, and it can affect a woman’s daily life by impacting her job, her libido, social life, and her overall ability to do things freely. It is very important to have abnormal bleeding addressed by your physician because it can cause blood loss, which can lead to anemia or fatigue. In the event you have shortness of breath as an additional symptom, you should have your abnormal bleeding examined immediately.

Treatment for Abnormal Bleeding

Dr. Shakiba will begin treatment after a thorough examination that will include reviewing an extensive personal history and a manual pelvic exam. The treatment plan will begin after all details are assessed, and the least invasive options are always the first to be utilized.

If necessary, pelvic ultrasounds will be part of the diagnosis process, as they can be very helpful in locating the source of any pelvic anatomical issues. For the convenience of our patients, these ultrasounds are done in-office by an experienced technician whose area of focus is on pelvic ultrasounds. The results are then reviewed by Dr. Shakiba who will make further assessments based on the findings. As a last resort, women’s pelvic surgery will be suggested to provide optimal relief and results for the issue causing the abnormal bleeding.
