Uterine bleeding at irregular intervals, particularly between the expected menstrual periods. Metrorrhagia may be a sign of an underlying disorder, such as hormone imbalance, endometriosis, uterine fibroids or less commonly cancer of the uterus. Metrorrhagia may cause significant anemia.


Metrorrhagia is bleeding or spotting that occurs either

  • Between menstrual periods
  • Abnormal bleeding that is not associated with menstruation


Causes of Metrorrhagia 

It may be caused by hormone imbalances related to birth control pills or problems with the hormone producing glands or areas in the brain.  Certain conditions in the uterus or cervix can cause abnormal bleeding, including fibroids or polyps, scar tissue, inflammation, or cancer. Endometriosis, a condition in which the uterine lining tissue grows outside of the uterus, can cause metrorrhagia. 

Infections, such as genital warts or yeast infection may cause bleeding.  A miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy that is growing abnormally in the fallopian tubes can cause bleeding.  An intrauterine device (IUD) used for birth control can cause metrorrhagia. 

Certain chronic conditions such as diabetes, blood clotting disorders, and thyroid disorders can contribute to metrorrhagia.  Additionally, blood-thinning medications may cause bleeding.

The main symptom of metrorrhagia is light to heavy bleeding or spotting between regular menstrual periods.  You may or may not experience cramps or abdominal pain with bleeding.  A miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy may cause severe cramps with bleeding.
