Brief Answer:
Irregular shedding.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the query to HCM,
this is hormonal imbalance with irregular shedding that you are experiencing if pregnancy test has already been done and it has been ruled out. This usually happen due to decreased estrogenisation of endometrium and then during mid cycle decreased progesterone levels can cause early withdrawal bleed. Often sometimes seen in cases of early onset menopause or premature ovarian failure. You are hence advised to get a hormonal profile done with FSH, LH, AMH, SERUM ESTRADIOL AND SERUM PROGESTERONE LEVELS done to reach a diagnosis.
If the FSH AND LH levels are normal then you would have to be placed on combined oral contraceptive pills for at least 3 cycles to establish hormonal balance again.
