Doctor

A:   Periods within 2 weeks of the previous one and along with heavy bleeding may be due to hormonal imbalance, infection or tumour. It may also be due to a very early miscarriage, if there was any possibility of pregnancy due to a contraception failure or may be due to an unprotected sex. If the heavy bleeding continues for more than 3 to 4 days or is associated with severe cramps, fever etc. you might want to see your doctor at the earliest for treatment.
