Author(s): Dr. KP Sowmya and Varshita KM
Abstract: AUB in a perimenopausal women is when there is a substantial change in frequency, duration or the amount of bleeding, when there is bleeding in between periods, or when there is bleeding after 12 months of cessation of menses. 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. Of the 64 women considered, majority i.e., 37.6% had uterine fibroid while 32.8% had endometrial hyperplasia. 15.7 %( 10 cases) had a bulky uterus, of which, 10% (1 case) wasn’t associated with any other uterine abnormalities.23.4% of the women had no detectable sonological abnormalities. Here, we observed that of the 17 women who had hyperplasia without atypia, three women had an endometrial thickness of <=5, the exact values of endometrial thickness being 3.6mm, 4.3mm and 4.8mm and their ages 43, 42 and 45 respectively; 4 women had ET between 6 and 10.9mm; 4 women had ET between 11 and 15.9mm and 6 women had ET greater than 16mm. One woman had hyperplasia with atypia. She was a postmenopausal women, 45 years of age with an ET of 12.5mm. Two women had cystic atrophy, their ET being 4.3mm and 18mm their ages being 42 and 52 respectively.
