Sheri Puffer, M.D. Obstetrician and Gynecologist Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital

Women usually have a menstrual cycle every 21 to 35 days. This is where the lining of the uterus is shed and bleeding occurs. During a woman’s life, there are many times and reasons for irregular menstrual bleeding. Irregular menstrual bleeding has many definitions including too heavy, too frequent, or not frequent enough. Your doctor will refer to these bleeding patterns as “abnormal uterine bleeding” or AUB.
