Thank you for your query.
What you are experiencing is not normal.
There could be various reasons for this.
An early pregnancy, a failed pregnancy or an ectopic pregnancy could present this way.
Also, sometimes, stress, anxiety, thyroid disorders, recent fluctuations in weight, travelling , polycystic ovaries - all could lead to altered bleeding pattern.
Being on hormonal medications could be a cause.
Cervical erosions or growths or endometriosis / endometrial polyps could be a reason.
You need to consult your doctor to rule out the cause.
take care.
