Causes

It can occur due to any of several causes, including hormonal imbalance, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, or cancer. It can lead to anemia in long-standing cases.

Treatment

Treatment depends on the cause. In cases where malignancy is ruled out, hormone supplementation or the therapeutic use of hormonal contraception is usually recommended to induce bleeding on a regular schedule.

Types

Two variations of the condition are menorrhagia and metrorrhagia.
