Menstrual Cycle & Abnormalities

Your menstrual history is important including how often you have periods, how long they last, how much bleeding you have, and symptoms associated with your menstrual cycle. We will review your menstrual history at each annual visit. However, additional appointments may be needed if you are experiencing changes in your period such as:

  • Periods that occur less than 21 days or more than 35 days apart
  • Missing three or more periods in a row
  • Menstrual flow that is much heavier or lighter than normal
  • Periods lasting more than seven days
  • Periods accompanied by pain, cramping, nausea or vomiting
  • Bleeding or spotting that occurs between periods, after menopause or following sex

These changes may need to be assessed by your gynecologic provider to check for causes such as uterine fibroids, uterine polyps, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease or premature ovary failure to name a few.
