Welcome to ehealthforum.
Changes in bleeding pattern and pain suggest possibility of serious issues like endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, cervical cancer, PID or pre-menopausal changes in your body. After a careful evaluation with examination and further investigations exact cause can be made out. Treatment would be based on your test results. Do not delay your visit to your gynecologist.
Take care.
