Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
Bleeding in between periods is called metrorrhagia.
It can occur due to many causes like uterine fibroids, polyps, adenomyosis, endometrial abnormalities, gonadal hormonal imbalance, thyroid hormonal abnormalities, cervical erosion, in case of pregnancy miscarriage, coagulation abnormalities etc.
As you are having heavy bleeding, better to get evaluated.
Please do consult your doctor, get examined and go for investigations like ultrasound, gonadal hormonal profile, thyroid hormonal profile, complete blood picture etc.
With this workup the possible cause of your problem can be identified and treated.

Take care.
