Bleeding Between Periods

An irregularity of the menstrual cycle is bleeding that occurs consistently at about the mid-point of the cycle. The bleeding may last 1–2 days or even longer, and if it is relatively heavy, this condition may be mistaken as early periods. The main factors are usually a disharmony of Yin and Yang, imbalance of Qi and Blood, stasis of Blood or Damp-Heat.

Causes of Irregular Menstrual Bleeding

  • Overwork, too many children too close together
  • Irregular diet
  • Traumas, abdominal operations, post-partum stasis of Blood
  • Excessive physical exercise

Treatment of Irregular Menstrual Bleeding

Treatment may include herbs to tonify Kidney-Yin and clear Empty-Heat or Damp-Heat.
