Abnormal vaginal bleeding is unexpected bleeding from the inside of the vagina. What is considered abnormal varies, depending on what is normal for a particular woman.
Examples of abnormal vaginal bleeding include bleeding:
- When a woman isn't expecting her menstrual period
- After sex
- When a woman's menstrual flow is lighter or heavier than is normal for her
- At an unexpected time of life, such as before age 10 or after menopause
