Hi ,

Thanks for the information.

Based on the timing of the bleeding I would consider this problem is due to hormonal imbalance.This will not be XXXXXXX unless conditions like Fibroids and tumours which present this way have been ruled out.

I recommend you to get a Ultrasound scan of the abdomen and pelvis to look for the fibroids or tumours in the genital organs which sometimes present with inter-menstrual bleed. Most of times they present with long term inter-menstrual bleed rather than a sudden occurrence.Hence, I consider them a least priority but still have to be ruled out.

Also do consult a gynaecologist with the scan report to confirm the fact that its due to hormonal imbalance.There would be no need for any medication now except for pain with antispasmodics.

Hope I answered all your questions. Please use any answer clarification before closing and rating this answer. I will be happy to explain or expand on any issue you may have.
