Confidential, fast STD testing
Irregular vaginal bleeding is a very common experience. In fact, many women will experience irregular vaginal bleeding at least once in their lives. Irregular vaginal bleeding takes many forms; some women may have little to no bleeding during their expected menstrual cycle, while others may experience heavy bleeding. Spotting between cycles is also considered irregular. Abnormal bleeding may occur with other STD symptoms.
Several conditions can cause irregular vaginal bleeding. Some of these conditions are serious, while others are fairly harmless. Possible causes of irregular vaginal bleeding include:
STD testing is an important step in diagnosing irregular vaginal bleeding, especially if there has been a possible STD exposure. It’s crucial to test for STDs sooner rather than later to avoid any irreversible complications. If STD testing returns with negative results, a doctor can diagnose other causes of irregular vaginal bleeding.
Treatment for irregular vaginal bleeding depends on the diagnosis. When caused by an STD, antibiotics can cure the infection. Several STDs can cause irregular vaginal bleeding and other similar symptoms, but require different treatments, so STD testing is crucial. If testing returns negative, a doctor can prescribe proper treatment.
