    Abnormal Uterine Bleeding - What Increases Your Risk

    Risk factors (things that increase your risk) for abnormal uterine bleeding include:

    • Your age. Abnormal uterine bleeding is more common in teens, at the beginning of the reproductive years, and in perimenopausal women at the end of their reproductive years.
    • Your weight. Overweight women more commonly develop abnormal uterine bleeding.1

    Some women have abnormal uterine bleeding even though they have no risk factors.
