What causes continuous menstrual bleeding?

Hi,I just ended my period 4 days ago and yesterday and today I have random heavy bleeding that does not look like a regular period it is very bright red and continuous flowing for minutes (almost uncontrollable). I have never had this happen before and I am worried. I am not taking any medications and this did happen the morning after I went out and drank alcohol.

Nothing much to worry as it can happen normally and will settle by itself.

As the first line of management, you can take drugs like Tranexamic Acid for symptomatic relief.

If bleeding persists better to consult a gynecologist and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I had a miscarriage in the beginning of April. My husband and I continue to have unprotected sex. The beginning of May I had my period on time and for 7 days. My next period came 2 or 3 days early and was only 4 days which is not normal. Could I be pregnant?

I had a full period on 1/22 and then again on 2/7. I started very light spotting on 3/7 and it has continued ever since that day. I have not had any pain like I usually do with my period. I assume it is possible, at age 43, that this may be the start of menopause?
