Hello and welcome.
I am Dr. Norm, and I look forward to helping you today.
Most likely your unusual bleeding (It's not really a period) is due to not ovulating. Ovulation
is what causes normal periods. As a woman ages, she ovulates less frequently, so it's not unusual at age 34 to miss some ovulations.
When a woman doesn't ovulate, the uterine lining still builds up, and eventually some bleeding will occur. But it may be any type of bleeding, and usually not like a normal period.
The other thing that occurs when there is no ovulation is that the ovaries
may continue to be stimulated, and that can cause many symptoms similar to pregnancy
, such as breast tingling, nausea, and it can even bring on migraine headaches.
I would recommend that you see an OB/GYN doctor for evaluation. Most likely some progesterone
pills will help to clean off the uterine lining, since otherwise the bleeding could continue for some time.
It's likely that your periods won't be so regular in the future as they have in the past.
