Thank you for waiting online.
You are having irregularity in your periods sometimes skipping as many as 3 months between cycles and now bleeding heavily continuously for 5 weeks with large clots.
A prolonged period is one that lasts longer than 7 days.Your heavy bleeding since last 5 weeks is of concern.It can be due to
stress,being overweight or underweight,imbalance of hormones,polycystic ovarian syndrome/estrogen dominance,uterine abnormalities (fibroids/cysts/polyps/endometriosis).
You need clinical examination,testing for thyroid function and other hormone levels. A pelvic exam is required to rule out any uterine abnormality, a cervical polyp or fibroid, or a uterine infection.Also you need an ultrasound to evaluate the uterus, the ovaries and the fallopian tubes.
This does not seem to be due to cancer or anything serious,but the underlying cause needs to be evaluated & treated accordingly.
So bot***** *****ne is that I advise you to please make an appointment with your gyne doctor to have these tests done so as to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.
Hope this helped.
