It is probably breakthrough bleeding again. Speak to your doctor and remember to take an iron supplement while bleeding heavy (but do not overdose on iron).

Stress does not make you bleed. It normally delays your bleeding. It is your body's self defense mechanism. While you are under stress and you need your health and energy, it will not bleed, to give you a chance to deal with whatever is bothering you,
