Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding
Usually dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB) results from unpredictable hormonal changes, so it cannot be prevented. But being overweight can affect your hormone production, which increases your risk for irregular menstrual bleeding. If you are overweight, losing weight may help prevent dysfunctional uterine bleeding.
