Welcome to ehealthforum.
It is difficult to comment on the abnormal and sudden bleeding that you describe without examining you. 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 abnormal and sudden bleeding that you describe. Treatment as indicated (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you to control the bleeding and regulate your periods. Consider being 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. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
