Pediatric Clinics of North America 2018, 65 (3): 543-560

Certain unique aspects of underlying inherited or acquired blood disorders exacerbate the "expected" hormonal imbalance at this age, thereby increasing the morbidity of the underlying problem. A multifactorial etiology demands a collaborative approach between hematologists and gynecologists or adolescent medicine physicians to effectively manage abnormal uterine bleeding in young women with blood disorders.
