Abstract

Dysfunctional uterine bleeding occurs in the absence of any pelvic pathology with disruption of normal patterns of endometrial stimulation. It is diagnosed by exclusion and is found more commonly in women around perimenopausal age and increases till menopause. Diagnosis is by histopathologic examination. Methods: Endometrial biopsies of 100 women in the reproductive and perimenopausal age were examined. Dysfunctional uterine bleeding was found to be more in the reproductive age group followed by perimenopausal ages. Menorrhagia (43%) and polymenorrhia (22%) were the most common types of bleeding patterns. Histopathological pattern of endometrium mostly shows proliferative changes (60%). Diagnosis of dysfunctional uterine bleeding is necessary to
identify changes early so as to prevent complications.
