Introduction: Historically our culture has traditionally viewed even the normal menustral cycle as an aberration, ostracizing the reproductive aged women. Aristotle quoted Hippocrates writings by describing the process of heavy uterine bleeding as "In quantity, bleeding in excessive, saith Hippocrates, when they flow about eighteenth ounces". Aims and Objective: To study the various aetiopathological factors responsible for AUB in women ages 20-55 years, and to correlate the clinical presentation with ultrasonography, hysteroscopy, laparoscopy and histopathological finding. Sample: In this study, 140 cases of 15-55 years of age group were randomly selected after the exclusion criteria who were willing to get admitted as well as prepared for follow-up. Inclusion Criteria: The cases of abnormal uterine bleeding, attending the gynecology OPD with complaints of menorrhagia, metrorrhagia, polymenorrhoea, and polymenorrhagia in the age group 20-55 years, were selected. Exclusion Criteria: Pregnant patients and patients below 20 years and above 55 years are excluded from the study. Conclusion: It is seen that incidence of AUB is more common in 5 th decade of life and in multiparous women. Menorrhagia is the most common bleeding pattern followed by metrorrhagia. Histopathological examination of the endometrium revealed that whatever may be the pathology, proliferative endometrium is the most common pattern.
