Congenital and acquired bleeding disorders often go unrecognized by young women and their care providers. Abnormal vaginal bleeding, including heavy menstrual bleeding and bleeding between periods, can lead to anemia, fatigue, missed school/work, put patients at risk for transfusion and impact overall quality of life. The Young Women’s Health and Hematology Clinic pairs experts from Marshall Health and Cabell Huntington Hospital together in order to improve patient safety and quality of life.

Our Services

Marshall Obstetrics & Gynecology and Cabell Huntington Hospital offer a monthly Young Women’s Health and Hematology Clinic on the second Thursday of each month at Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center, where all services are conveniently located. The clinic is exclusively for young women ages 10 to 24 who experience menorrhagia and abnormal vaginal bleeding. It specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal vaginal bleeding and patient education, including the need for specialized health care in the future, especially during surgery, trauma or childbirth. Patients have one-stop access during their doctor visit to lab work, ultrasounds and other radiology services, as needed.

Our Team

Our multidisciplinary team of providers includes West Virginia’s only fellowship-trained pediatric and adolescent gynecologist as well as an experienced, fellowship-trained pediatric hematologist/oncologist. They are experienced in caring for young women with adolescent menorrhagia and providing the expert educational and psychosocial support that goes along with this diagnosis.
