Abnormal uterine bleeding is common in adolescents and is thought to affect 9% to 14% of women in their reproductive years. Certain unique aspects of underlying inherited or acquired blood disorders exacerbate the “expected” hormonal imbalance at this age, thereby increasing the morbidity of the underlying problem. A multifactorial etiology demands a collaborative approach between hematologists and gynecologists or adolescent medicine physicians to effectively manage abnormal uterine bleeding in young women with blood disorders.
