Answer

Reassure patients that most bleeding stops, but not immediately. Provide literature on the treatment of choice, including expectations and adverse effects.

Many patients appreciate reassurance that they do not have cancer and are not alone in their plight.

Reassure patients who experience a treatment failure that other options are available.

For patient education resources, see the Women's Health Center, as well as Vaginal BleedingAmenorrheaUterine Fibroids, and Female Sexual Problems.
