Doctor :   derangement in the hormones or ovarian problems can lead to changes in the menstrual cycle
Doctor :   so if any abnormality is found in your tests, then treatment will be directed to correct it
Doctor :   and if there is no abnormality found, then it would mean that your body is adapting to new bleeding pattern.
