hi and thanks for the query,
I think its important to get a proper meidcal examination. it s worth knowing whether this is the frist time you are experiencing an abnormal menstrual cycle or not. An abnormal menstrual cycle is an issue when it becimes repetitive and the reason why you had an abnormal bleed needs to be sought after. It is routine to undertake a pregnancy test and an abdominal ultrasound to formally exclude a pregancy or some other gynecologic cause of bleeding.
The heart burn and indigestion might not really be related to the pelvic problems you have been experiencing. A past history of gastritis is worth to be known and any recent changes in your diet, taking of some drugs are also important.
Consulting your gynecologist for a proper evaluation might be importnat.
Thanks and best regards,

Ayurveda Specialist Dr. D.P.Bura's  Response
Hi, For hormonal irregularities, effective treatments for dysfunctional uterine bleeding usually involve the use of prescription hormones such as birth control pills to help in the coordination of the menstrual cycle. A specialist such as a gynecologist usually starts this type of treatment. The doctor should check for another cause of bleeding if the patient does not respond to hormonal treatment. If other causes (such as infections or bleeding disorders) are found, treatment is directed toward the cause, Regards, Dr.D.P.Bura
