Hi,
Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out.

In view of the symptoms you are going through, you seem to be suffering from metro-menorrhagia.

In this, there’s not only excessive bleeding during the periods but also bleeding in between the periods.

Some of the causes are Hypothyroidism, Endometrial proliferation or hyperplasia like ovarian tumor and polycystic ovarian disease, endometrial polyps and neoplasia, endometriosis, fibroids and uterine sarcomas.

In my opinion you need to get your pelvic examination done from your gynecologist along with investigations like complete blood count, thyroid function tests, PAP smear and ultrasound uterus.

Once cause is identified, treatment can be planned.

I must admit that it is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
