Firstly, please exclude pregnancy and an incomplete abortion. Secondly, please see a specialist to assess the clinical situation and also the more likely causes like hormone imbalance, local infections, polyps or erosions of the cervix, general infections, stress, use of certain medications. The bleeding can usually be controlled with styptics and hormone supplements if it is not related to pregnancy. Else, an evacuation is needed under proper aseptic precautions and antibiotic cover to control the bleeding. The general condition also needs to be improved. Hope this helps.
