Symptoms

An infection is a cause that is always considered in women with abnormal bleeding.

Treatment

If an infection is the cause, treatment with antibiotics is required. This is generally given orally, but if an infection is severe, antibiotics given in to the vein (intravenous) may be required. This is generally given while a hospital inpatient.

When possible, clinicians prefer to isolate the actual organism causing an infection. This is to determine if the organism is sensitive to the antibiotics prescribed.
