5 week and I am still have blood come

User Profile
On February 24 all of the sudden I had a gush of blood come out of my vagina with blood clots. I assumed it was my period so I put on a pad and went on my way. The next day it was gone. Days to continue I only knew I was bleeding when I wiped myself. Now its been 5 week and I am still have blood come out when ever I wipe myself after using the bathroom and also past two days was a lot of blood with blood clots again and then today its gone and little blood when I wipe. I am beginning to worry if this is serious? I just want to add I haven't had sex in 4 months and I have PCOS and last time I had my period was September 18. can this be a miscarriage or just a period?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the abnormal and prolonged bleeding that you describe without thorough evaluation. Do not ignore your symptoms. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. If the symptoms have been persistent, then you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough examination to look for exact cause. Further treatment options would be started/suggested based on your evaluation results. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
