How are menstrual irregularities diagnosed?

  • If your daughter is experiencing irregular and profuse menstrual bleeding, her physician will perform a pelvic exam to rule out the possibility of pregnancy disorders or pelvic infections.
  • In cases of excessive bleeding, a Hematocrit blood test will determine the amount of blood loss.
