Brief Answer:
Endometrial pathology should be ruled out

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Heavy bleeding in this age group can be due to dysfunctional uterine bleeding, endometrial hyperplasia or rarely endometrial carcinoma.
I will suggest you to consult an OBGYN specialist for proper examination, ultrasound for endometrial thickness and an endometrial biopsy to confirm the diagnosis.
For the relief now, you can take tranexemic acid tablets twice a day for 3-4 days.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
