Hello,

 

This duration of bleeding puts you under risk of anemia and it need to be investigated by an ultrasound and blood investigations. Following can be the causes;

 

1) Fibroid uterus

2) Uterine polyp

3) Endocervical polyp

4) Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism

5) Prolactin abnormalities

6) Endometrial hyperplasia

7) Other hormonal aberrations

 

Hormonal problems are the most likely cause with your history of irregular periods. You need to consult your gynecologist or primary care physician as soon as possible for the evaluation and investigations.

 

Please feel free for your follow up questions.
