Abnormal or dysfunctional uterine bleeding is most often caused by a hormone imbalance. This can occur because of the onset of menopause or due to fluctuations in the hormones after a major reproductive event, such as childbirth. Abnormal bleeding can also be attributed to cysts, fibroids, and other conditions that affect a woman's reproductive system. Certain types of infections, like sexually transmitted diseases or those that affect the cervix, can also cause some degree of dysfunctional uterine bleeding. In some cases, a person's weight may play a role in how their reproductive system functions. It can also be a cause of abnormal uterine bleeding.
Treatment of dysfunctional uterine bleeding will be determined by its cause. Medications and hormone replacement therapy will control abnormal bleeding that results from hormonal imbalances and certain health conditions like endometriosis. Young girls who are experiencing their first menstrual cycles may have abnormally heavy periods for the first few months, but will eventually become more regular as they get older. Women who have severe uterine bleeding that is the result of fibroids, cysts, or tumors may need to have a more extensive treatment plan in place. Surgical procedures such as ablation techniques or a hysterectomy may be recommended.
A hysterectomy is often recommended when abnormal or dysfunctional uterine bleeding becomes so severe it affects the woman's overall health.

Women who suffer from advanced endometriosis, irregular periods, or fibroids that have not responded well to other types of treatment may be possible candidates for a full or partial hysterectomy. Dr. Lipeles will normally only recommend a hysterectomy if the woman has reached a specific age, has had more than 2 children, or their health may be at stake. Each situation is different and all of the options should be carefully weighed before making such an important decision.

I am actually pregnant again (yay!) and I will be going back to this office throughout my pregnancy. They're amazing, and I had a great experience.
He delivered my baby and both baby and I are healthy. I was up and walking right after the delivery and healed perfectly so I couldn't be happier!
He performed the surgery with a robot so recovery was not bad. His staff was extremely helpful and pleasant.
The staff are amazing, very friendly and helpful. I'm definitely going to keep coming here for check ups and birth control because I love it that much. I would recommend
Nervous about the delivery all the anxiety disappeared the second the doc walked into the room. My hubby loved visiting as much as I did!
Dr. Lipeles was gentle and kind (First Male ObGyn experience for me). He was hilarious with bedside manner and actually had me laughing throughout the entire experience.
