Hi,

Yes, sometimes in case of undiagnosed pregnancy, miscarriage may happen without notice of the woman. And that may present as prolonged bleeding. May be because of that your doctor might have asked regarding the possibility of pregnancy. So, if there is any history of unprotected intercourse around the time of ovulation, please go for a urine or preferably blood test for pregnancy.

If the test gives a negative result, the possibility of pregnancy is less and you can continue the treatment advised by your doctor. Duoluton l is a combined hormonal contraceptive pill, it can also help in decreasing the bleeding and in regularization of the menstrual cycle.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
