Dysfunctional utrine bleeding

Dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB) is abnormal bleeding from the vagina that is due to changes in hormone levels. It is normal for a woman's menstrual bleeding to last up to seven days and have bleeding occur every 21-35 days. Abnormal vaginal bleeding occurs when the menstrual period is not regular, bleeding lasts longer than normal, is heavier than normal, or when bleeding patterns change and becomes unpredictable.

This is elaborated in ayurvedic texts as ASRIGDAR. Sushruta assumes the term for this as LOHITKSHARA (Su.Ut.38) and Charak postulates this as ASRAJA the RAKTAPITTA type disorder. Ayurveda considers the DUB is a cluster of diseases that can be revolutionized many other diseases like infertility, anemia and other.


The annoyance of the dosha especially amalgam of Pitta with Rakta is responsible and according to modern medicine has the following explanation. The most common causes include:

  • Polyps of the cervix or uterus
  • Fibroids of the uterus
  • Birth control pills
  • Hormone usage
  • A lining of the uterus that is either too thick or too thin
  • Cancer

Symptoms of dysfunctional uterine bleeding may include:

  • Bleeding or spotting from the vagina between periods
  • Periods that occur less than 28 days apart (more common) or more than 35 days apart
  • Time between periods changes each month
  • Heavier bleeding (such as passing large clots, needing to change protection during the night, soaking through a sanitary pad or tampon every hour for 2 - 3 hours in a row)
  • Bleeding lasts for more than 7 days
Other symptoms caused by changes in hormone levels may include:
