The menstrual cycle is considered normal when uterine bleeding occurs every 21 to 35 days and is not excessive. The normal length of menstrual bleeding is between two and seven days . Abnormal uterine bleeding occurs when the frequency or quantity of uterine bleeding differs from the parameters indicated or when the woman is bleeding between menstrual periods , this can be caused by a variety of factors. The two most common causes are structural abnormalities of the reproductive system and ovulation disorders. Postmenopausal women should seek immediate medical attention if they experience bleeding, because the cause of the bleeding and concerns are different from those of women of reproductive age.
