Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing back.

In the current scenario, I would ask you to go for a proper gynecological evaluation, exclude any infection, get a pelvic sonogram to know the status of the ovaries, to look for any cysts of the ovary which can cause hormone disturbances thereby causing altered bleeding pattern. A complete hormone profile, glucose tolerance assessment and blood counts along with urinalysis help to detect the cause of this pattern and plan further management.

Weight gain is a side effect of the possible altered hormone levels. Please maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Hope I have answered your query. Please feel free to contact for further clarifications. I will be happy to help.

regards,
Shanti.V.
