Comprehensive Gynecology Services in Indianapolis

Menstrual irregularities such as heavy bleeding or prolonged bleeding (menorrhagia) can have many different causes. Hysteroscopy is a simple procedure during which Dr. Ensley uses a specialized scope to view the lining of your uterus. He often uses this test to determine the source of abnormal bleeding.

Symptoms may include menstrual periods that last longer than seven days, and bleeding so heavy that you must change a tampon or pad more than once per hour. You should see Dr. Ensley if excessively heavy or prolonged menstrual periods interfere with your daily life. Heavy periods can be caused by:

  • Hormone imbalance in women
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
  • Inherited blood disorders
  • Benign growths or cancers
  • Ectopic pregnancy/ectopic pregnancy pain
  • Annovulation (lack of ovulation)
  • Adenomyosis (uterine glands embedded in uterine muscle)
  • Medications

Excessive bleeding can also cause anemia (iron deficiency) and may be caused by an underlying or unidentified medical condition. In most cases, Dr. Ensley can treat abnormal heavy or prolonged periods with great success. His methods include adenomyosis ultrasound and pelvic inflammatory disease treatment, among others.
