Hi thanks for your reply. I was kind or worried it may be something more sinister. Also with my age being 44 whether it could be hormonal but am unsure if this could cause prolonged bleeding
Expert:  Onlinedoc replied 7 months ago.

Persistent bleeding can be cause due to hormonal imbalance at your age.

So further pelvic ultrasound must be done in your case.

Uterine pathology like Fibroid,Endometriosis should be ruled out.

Irregular bleeding with Kenalog injection doesn't persistent so long.
