Abnormal Uterine Bleeding Pathway

Before your appointment

To get ready for your appointment with your healthcare provider:

  • Write down how you feel, your symptoms, and any concerns you have. Use a symptom tracker (PDF) or menstrual diary to help you remember information about your symptoms.
  • Common symptoms of abnormal uterine bleeding are periods that happen more or less often, seem lighter or heavier, or last longer than is normal for you. Bleeding when you don’t expect it (such as between periods or after sex) is another common symptom.
  • Review your list of symptoms and questions and mark the things that are most important for you to share with your healthcare provider.
  • Make a list of any medicines you use, including any vitamins, lotions, herbs, and supplements.
  • Ask someone you trust to go with you to your appointment. They can help you ask questions, write down instructions, and remember explanations.
  • Bring a pen and paper and plan to write notes during the visit or record the conversation using your phone or an app like the Alberta Health Services My Care Conversations app.
