  • Coagulapathy, Ovulatory dysfunction, Endemic, Iatrogenic, Neoplasia
  • Coagulapathy, Ovulatory dysfunction, Endometrial, Immunologic, Not classified

Question 9

AUB that is ovulatory is likely the result of endocrine process in which estrogen is stimulating endometrial growth without progesterone opposition, then is sloughed only once the endometrium outgrows its blood supply/loses nutrients.

A 41 yo female presents with a complaint of heavy but regular periods occuring at her usual 29-30 intervals. She states that her last period was very heavy and lasted for 8 days.

Expected pelvic examination findings with this client would include:
  • diffusely enlarged uterus
  • irregularly enlarged uterus
  • fixed retroverted uterus
  • prolapsed uterus

  • continuous COCs and that it can take up to 3 months to be effective.
  • Cyclic COCs and that she should results after 1 month treatment.
  • NSAIDS which will help reverse the prostglandin imbalance and be effective within the first 12 hours.
  • Estrogen therapy to calm the hyperactive growth of her uterine lining.

Question 12

Progestins are the first line of treatment for an acute bleeding episode due to a denuded endometrium because it will stimulate the synthesis of PgF2 alpha which is vasoconstrictive.
  • True
  • False

Question 13

A woman brings her daughter in to see you because she is not menstruating. You would evaluate her for all of the following except:

Question 14

You suspect that your patient's AUB is annovulatory so you order _________ to confirm the diagnosis.

  • serum progesterone on day 22 of her cycle
  • prolactin
  • quantitative serum hCG

Question 15

The following pts present for AUB.

  • They are a first line therapy for women who are anemic
  • There is an estridiol "flare" that occurs around day 5, accompanied by heavy bleeding that lasts for several days.

Question 17

In evaluating a client for primary amenorrhea, you administer a progesterone challenge test. Check off all the following things that are true for this test
  • You administer micronized progesterone 400mg daily X10 days, medroxyprogesterone acetate 5-10mg daily for 5-10 days, or progesterone in oil 200mg IM
  • If the challenge is positive, should should observe a withdrawal bleed while taking the progesterone.

  • If the challenge is positive, it confirms rules out an obstruction of the genital tract
  • If the challenge is negative, it confirms exercise induced annovulation.

Question 18
