Metrorrhagia refers to bleeding from the uterus at non-regular intervals, especially between the time of your expected menstrual periods. Bleeding from metrorrhagia is not associated with menstrual bleeding. Metrorrhagia is a common problem among teenagers and women approaching menopause. It can be associated with hormonal changes, pregnancy issues, sexually transmitted diseases, reproductive system issues and stress.
Metrorrhagia can be a symptom of a more serious underlying problem such as:
- hormonal imbalance
- uterine fibroids
- cancer of the reproductive organs
If you are experiencing metrorrhagia it is important to educate yourself as much as possible and seek out the advice of a doctor as there are numerous treatment options available depending on the exact cause of the bleeding.
The exact cause of Metrorrhagia, and how to quickly eliminate it:
Endometriosis is the single most common cause of Metrorrhagia and frequent mid-cycle bleeding. To learn how to completely and permanently eliminate Endometriosis, get this e-book and read it. Once the Endometriosis is eliminated, all the symptoms of Metrorrhagia will subside as well.
Many doctors do not understand Metrorrhagia and it’s connection with Endometriosis, so it’s important not to take any advice you get from any single doctor as written in stone. You may want to get a second opinion or seek out the advice of a specialist in this area. You should also learn as much as possible about Metrorrhagia since your health is ultimately your responsibility.
Metrorrhagia Symptoms, Signs and Causes
There are a number of things that can cause metrorrhagia and each of these conditions can have their own symptoms, signs and causes. Because metrorrhagia has multiple causes, it is important to look at all the symptoms of each medical condition to be able to understand if that is the underlying condition causing the irregular bleeding. Some of the main causes and/or symptoms of those conditions are listed below. It is important to consult our physician to determine the exact cause of your metrorrhagia.
Endometriosis: The most obvious symptom of endometriosis is pelvic or lower back pain. The pain often occurs just before, during or after menstruation. Other symptoms include: trouble getting pregnant, pain with intercourse of during bowel movements, excessive bleeding, tiredness or fatigue, constipation or diarrhea, feeling nauseous and/or feeling bloated.

Cancer or Tumors: Metrorrhagia can be a sign of a serious underlying disease such as cancer or a tumour. Your physician will ask you questions and run a number of tests to see is this is causing your bleeding.
Uterine Fibroids: Fibroids occur on the muscle tissue of the uterus. The are non-cancerous and can often cause severe cramps and bleeding.
Infection: Infections such as a yeast infection or genital wars can cause irregular bleeding as well.
Trauma is also a very common cause of Metrorrhagia. If your Metrorrhagia is due to trauma, you can expect all the symptoms to subside within a few days. If Metrorrhagia is something you experience on a regular basis or if you have had it for more than 5 days, chances are it is caused by something else. A medical examination can likely uncover the underlying cause of the condition. As we already said, Endometriosis is the cause of more than 80% of all Metrorrhagia cases and the good news is it can be easily eliminated.
Should you be worried?

How you can stop Metrorrhagia?
The key is to eliminate the underlying cause of it. As we already stressed, this usually is Endometriosis. Most other causes are temporary and Metrorrhagia will subside on it’s own if it is caused by Pregnancy or Trauma.
