Dysfunctional uterine bleeding is a condition where a woman suffers from abnormal uterine bleeding during her periods. Menstrual cycles are irregular and mostly occur before the 28 days time period. Heavy period with clots is another irritating symptom, leading to excessive mood swings.

However, such uterus problems are curable with Ayurvedic herbs as well as natural home remedies.
