With Dr Ying Li, subspecialty fellow in Reproductive Endocrinology at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and Genea ®
Abnormal vaginal bleeding is a common problem experienced by women of all ages, affecting approximately 10-30% of those of reproductive age, and up to 50% of perimenopausal women. Junior doctors are commonly asked to see women presenting with acute per vaginal (PV) bleeding in the Emergency Department (ED), or to review them on the wards following admission. This podcast outlines a safe and effective approach to the initial assessment and management of PV bleeding in the non-pregnant patient.
Case 1 – You’re the junior doctor working in ED and are asked to see a 22-year-old patient with vaginal bleeding. The triage nurse has noted a negative urinary pregnancy test.
Case 2 – You are called on an after-hours shift about a 64-year-old female who is having vaginal bleeding on the ward, having been admitted for another reason.
