Abstract


We aim to determine the profile of women presenting with abnormal bleeding to IALCH over a five year period from the medico database at IALCH. Any patient presenting with abnormal uterine bleeding either as a primary or secondary complaint will be eligible. The data form will assess the commonest types of abnormal uterine bleeding in each age group, the various causes, tests used to assist in diagnosis and the various treatments & eventual outcomes of these treatments. We also aim to assess the use of the newer less radical surgical techniques in our local setting viz : endometrial ablative surgery
