Doctor: I know how worried you might be about this irregular bleeding. Let me reassure you that this is a very common condition that might have been caused by many reasons such as sudden changes in diet, exercise, sudden weight loss, stress.Surely any condition that causes a hormonal imbalance can result in an irregular bleeding. This event should not alarm you, however if this happens in your next cycles, a more detailed evaluation and blood work to examine your hormone levels might be needed to rule out more complex conditions.
