Welcome to ehealthforum,
The recent symptoms of changes in period pattern could be due to hormonal pattern changes, endometrial problems/infections, cervical problems, perimenopausal onset etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the symptoms that you describe. Treatment as needed (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
