Irregular periods, bloating, gas, weight gain. Give me a possible reason of these.

Hello, I am 27, married, 2 children (both delivered by c-section, last child born 4 years ago and had my tubes tied). For the last 2 years I have had irregular periods and I ve tried the pill to see if it was hormone related with no lasting luck. I ve had regular paps which all came back fine-nothing showed up at all. These last 6 months or so though have been terrible, my periods have gotten much closer together (sometimes I m only off my period for a week out of a month) and when I m not on my period I often spot a light brown/purple colour-mainly after sex and when I wipe. Not only do I have the irregular periods I am bloated constantly, I m having bad indigestion , I m tired and irritable (not at all normal for me), dizzy quite often and generally feel unwell. I m waiting to see a obgyn and hoping she ll find out something but I m driving myself a bit crazy worrying and waiting and I wanted to know if anybody else could give me a possible reason why this may be happening? Thank you in advance.

There could mostly be 2 causes here:hormonal and pathological.You need to get an ultrasound and some blood tests for hormone levels including thyroid,prolactin,blood sugar etc.The ultrasound will look for any pathology that might be present in the pelvis.The endometrial thickness should be noted.Diagnosis will depend on the findings.Fibroids,cyst,endometrial hyperplasia are possible causes.
