What is AUB?

The simple definition of Abnormal Uterine Bleeding (AUB) is a condition that results in uterine bleeding outside the normal volume, duration, regularity or frequency.

AUB is much more complicated than just blood flow during the menstrual cycle.

It's a condition with a variety of causes and symptoms. It can turn your period cycle upside down, and no two women have the same experience.

So, yeah. AUB is a beast.

What causes AUB?

For decades, women lacked a clear understanding of the causes of AUB symptoms. And physicians lacked a clear method of diagnosing and explaining the condition.

Today, physicians place the causes of AUB into two categories: structural and non-structural causes.

Examples of structural causes are polyps and fibroids.

Hormonal imbalances that affect the endometrium are an example of non-structural causes of AUB.
