Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

The hypothalamus pituitary axis is responsible for normal regular menses. Many factors are responsible for its proper functioning. Stress, PCOS, thyroid abnormalities and pituitary neoplasms are some of the causes that can lead to secondary amenorrhea. The subsequent medication that you have used seem to have pushed the axis into overdrive. Polyps, fibroids/leiomyoma and other endometrial growth that leads to menorrhagia. Please consult a gynecologist in this regard.

Wishing you best of health
