Common symptoms of abnormal bleeding


Most women have regular periods that occur about once a month and last up to seven days. But some women can have abnormal bleeding patterns, such as:
  • Unpredictable bleeding patterns
  • Bleeding between periods
  • Very heavy periods
  • Periods lasting longer than seven days

Any of these abnormal bleeding patterns or changes in typical bleeding pattern should be evaluated.
