Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the underlying cause for your symptoms without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Causes like hormonal derangements, thyroid abnormality, endometrial hyperplasia, anemia, bleeding disorder etc must be looked for and ruled out. After going through the evaluation and investigation results, your treating doctor/gynecologist would suggest the further management options. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest.
