Vaginal Bleeding Between Periods | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

A history and physical exam are done first. In some cases, this is all that is needed to determine the cause. Blood and urine tests are commonly done, including a pregnancy test and a complete blood count or CBC, to make sure the woman has not lost too much blood. Further tests are often related to the suspected cause. Other blood tests or special x-ray tests may be ordered. Occasionally, a laparoscopy to explore the woman's female organs may be done in some cases.
