Objective: Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) is an often pathology in women of reproductive age.
Materials and methods. The retrospective analysis of 336 patients with AUB was performed between 2017-2020. We analyzed the social and demographic data, reproductive function, somatic diseases, type and causes of AUB.
Results. According to PALM-COEIN classification polyps were found in 13.39 % of patients, adenomyosis – 20.83 %, leiomyoma – 37.50 %, malignancy/hyperplasia – 14.29 %, ovulation disorders – 24.11 %, endometrial factor – 12.20 %, iatrogenic reason – 6.25 %.
