Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding Remedies for Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding

Dysfunctional uterine bleeding is the unusual bleeding that occurs at the reproductive age. Some women may experience heavy menstrual bleeding during periods and the bleeding may last for more than 7 days. Sometimes there will be less bleeding and at times there will be irregular menstrual periods also. Sometimes there may be bleeding in between the menstrual cycle and even spotting can be seen. The major cause for these problems is the hormonal imbalance with excessive amount of estrogen and low level of progesterone. This hormonal imbalance increases the thickness of the lining of the uterus and at the time of shedding the lining it results in heavy bleeding. It even confuses the body about the date of shedding the lining and thus causes bleeding or spots in between the menstrual cycle.
