What are the symptoms of intermenstrual bleeding, how it can be treated?

About

Intermenstrual bleeding (IMB) is the uterine bleeding or spotting that occurs between the regular menstrual cycles of non-pregnant women.

Approximately 14% of women in their reproductive age or before menopause experience irregular or heavy menstrual bleeding.

  • It affects all ages
  • In some cases, it resolves on its own
  • Most of the cases are benign and thus are not harmful
  • It can be associated with multiple factors

Also called: Bleeding between periods

Intermenstrual bleeding (IMB) may or may not result in pain, but irregular bleeding can cause irritation and discomfort.

Symptoms:

Self-diagnosable
The main symptom of intermenstrual bleeding is abnormal bleeding between the periods. This symptom can be accompanied by some other symptoms depending on the underlying cause. Call the doctor if symptoms appear to be aggravated.

People may experience

  • Pelvic/ abdomen pain
  • Cramping
  • Bruising
  • Dizziness
  • Fever
  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Fatigue

Treatment

Self-care: Maintaining a healthy weight, a healthy diet, regular exercise, keeping a record of the menstrual cycle, and avoiding stress and smoking can help prevent intermenstrual bleeding.

Medications: Over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are helpful in reducing pain and other prescribed medicines. Painkiller should not be taken without doctor’s consultation.
