abnormal uterine bleeding (1). 5-15 % of reproductive
women are affected. It interferes with day to day activities of
women (2) . AUB is defined as bleeding from uterine corpus,
which is abnormal in frequency , regularity and duration . It is
classified into acute or chronic depending on duration of
bleeding. Perimenopause is defined as period of 2 -5 yrs
before menopause ,during which most of women experience
irregularity in cycles.(1).The terminologies like menorrhagia
, metrorrhagia , and dysfunctional uterine bleeding are
replaced by Abnormal uterine bleeding (2). Any women
presenting in perimenopausal age with abnormal uterine
bleeding , endometrial biopsy should be done to rule out
cause .In 2011, FIGO approved PALM COEIN classification to
simplify the terminologies (3). It consist of PALM group
–structural causes, COEIN group –functional causes. Clinical
