Abstract

DUB is extremely common in young adolescents, and can be regarded asa part of normal physiologic development. It is essential to have a firm grasp on normal physiologic development of the menstrual cycle to recognize the normal menstrual patterns of adolescents and to manage abnormal patterns that may develop. Specific management depends on the underlying cause, presence and extent of any existing anemia, and duration of the irregular menstrual pattern.
