Thanks for writing to us.

From the history it seems that you are having Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding. The irregular and heavy bleeding that you are having can be due to hormaonal disturbances, Uterine Fibroids, Polyps, etc.

For diagnosis, you need to have an ultrasound scan of your lower abdomen and some blood tests.
Laboratory assessment of hemoglobin, luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), prolactin, T4 (Thyroxine), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), pregnancy (by βhCG), and androgen profile can be done.

The management of this condition would require treatment with Progesterone to stabilize the endometrium and reduce bleeding along with hemostatic agents like Ethamsylate or Tranexaemic Acid.

Oral contraceptive pills (OCPs) will also help in treating by suppressing endometrial development, reestablish predictable bleeding patterns, decrease menstrual flow, and lower the risk of proper therapy after physical examination.

Meanwhile start taking Iron supplements to combat excessive blood loss from your body.

You can get stool culture done to check the exact cause of infection. Simultaneously, you may need the antibiotics also to treat your bowel infection.

I hope the above information helps to answer your questions effectively.

Please feel free to forward any additional queries, which I will be glad to answer.

Thanks for your answer. so you dont think the syptoms are related to cervical cancer. I was sexually active and had a baby at a early age,smoke etc.

Thanks for writing again.

Cervical cancer is a remote possibility.

If rest of the causes are ruled out, going for a PAP (Papanicolaou test) smear will help to get this possibility out of your mind.

But heavy bleeding does not occur until it is in very advanced stage in cervical cancer.

Hope this answers your query.

Wish you good health.
