Can a women with hepitatis have abnormal menstrual bleeding?

Yes, Hepatitis can cause menstrual problems. That's if you are talking about Chronic hepatitis C and B( how did you get it?!).... They affect the ability of the liver to synthesize (produce) Prothrombin which is very important to stop bleeding.
do you bleed from anywhere else?! bleeding gums,nose,rectal bleeding?!

:arrow: So please check your prothrombin time and concentration. your platelets count. And if they are both fine....then you are probably facing a GYN problem rather than a chronic hepatitis complication....each one has its own line of management.

tell me how it goes :) ,
Best regards,
