Abstract: It is very important to know about the various menstrual irregularities and its associated symptoms as it is important for their effective management in order to make these days less troublesome and tolerable for the women and hence help them carry on with their daily work with ease. This was a retrospective study done on patients of perimenopausal age group (40-52 years) who presented with AUB, to the department of obstetrics and gynaecology in a medical teaching college hospital. In our study, it has been observed that most of the women i.e., 71.9% belonged to the age group of 40-45 followed by (18.8%) of women belonging to the age group of 49-52. Most women considered in our study i.e., 53.1%, had been married for two to three decades when they came to the hospital with AUB. A majority of the patients i.e., 79.8 were anemic with Hb counts less than 11.21.9% of these women were severely anemic with Hb levels lesser than 7.
