What are endometrial causes?
If you have heavy menstrual bleeding with regular menstrual cycles and no other causes can be
identified, you may be diagnosed with Endometrial dysfunction, or AUB-E.
This diagnosis suggests
there are irregularities in hormone levels during the shedding and repairing of the Endometrium,
which can lead to endometrial tissue that is thicker than normal, resulting in a heavy and long
period, often with large blood clots.
AUB-E is an exclusion diagnosis. Meaning, fibroids and polyps
(and other common causes) have been ruled out as the cause of AUB.
Signs and symptoms of AUB-E
Heavy menstrual bleeding
Periods with clots
Long periods (7+ days)
Bleeding between periods
