Menorrhagia…metrorrhagia….menometrorrhagia. These words can strike fear into the hearts of men….or the uteri of women.
Some of you may know what these mean….some of you may have no idea. These are old and busted terms used to described dysfunction uterine bleeding (which is also is old and busted), but I have found still permeates throughout the non-OB/GYN subspecialties. For this episode, we will cover the definition and classifications of abnormal uterine bleeding as defined by the Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) systems. We will most likely cover work-up and management in a subsequent episode.
