Hi and welcome to health care magic,

There are a few histories that are important for me to provide you a better consultation.

It would help to know if you are using contraceptives, your age, previous pregnancies etc.

However with the above history You must first rule out a pregnancy if you are not on contraceptives by a urine pregnancy test. If it is negative the commonest cause of bleeding is hormonal imbalances and fibroids [non cancerous tumors] of the uterus. Cervical conditions like polyps may also produce bleeding. So you will need an examination by a gynecologist to determine the cause.

Do not worry. They are common and treatable conditions.

Hope I was able to help.
Thanks for using HCM
