There are many different reasons why bleeding patterns change, and bleeding problems occur in all age groups. Some of them are related to changes in hormone production patterns and some of them are related to structural problems such as polyps, fibroids or tumors.
Because there are so many different causes of abnormal bleeding there are also many different types of treatment. Most bleeding problems are fairly easy to resolve.
If surgery is required for treatment, most surgeries( including hysterectomy) can be performed with minimally invasive techniques and are almost always able to be done as outpatient procedures.
