We have a 36 year old female patient who has been on Automated Peritoneal Dialysis for one year. She reports very irregular menstrual cycles and frequent spotting. I've found it difficult to find literature regarding menstrual cycles for women on dialysis. Are there any resources available that would advise about this?

There is no unique treatment for spotting in menstruant females treated by PD. Menstrual irregularities must be completely evaluated by a gynaecologist.
