Laboratory and radiologic studies pertinent to the evaluation of dysfunctional uterine bleeding are delineated. Medical therapy is the principal tenet of treatment and is summarized for both acute and chronic bleeding. Surgical options are also discussed, as well as treatments of other causes of abnormal uterine bleeding.
