Your condition is perhaps metropathia hemorrhagica, an abnormal bleeding pattern triggered by abnormal hormonal levels in the body. If your blood tests, thyroid profile, diagnostic curettage, hysterosalpingography test, culdoscopy and vaginal and cervical cytology are all normal, you may be put on symptomatic and supportive treatment and if there is no use, if your child bearing function is over, you may go for a hysterectomy. Please get further suggestions from your doctor. Good luck.
