Menstral problems

Since January Ive been having my period every six to ten days and each time they last about three days. The last time the flow was lighter in color but very heavy. I over filled one pad every one to two hours and it has lasted for the last three day like thisand is still continues. What could be the reasoning behind the last three months being so imbalanced and often?

    This is called Inter menstrual bleeding. A single episode may be due to trauma after coitus. Repeated episodes need diagnosis. Some of the reasons might be hormonal imbalances, hormonal medicines, infection within the womb. This is a common side effect of OCPs. Read the following link to know more :-
