I have been spotting/bleeding for 31 days straight. Back in

This answer was rated:

I have been spotting/bleeding for 31 days straight. Back in December my period lasted for 6 days and came back two weeks later in January. That lasted for 14 days and then came back again on the last week of January. It has been going ever since them. Currently I am not experiencing any cramps and the flow has been light until today. Its a little heavier. Any idea what is causing this?

Thanks for all these additional details.I am sorry to hear about your problems.

Well, there are few medical conditions which causes such irregularity with periods, The exact cause should be evaluated at the earliest.
It includes- Fibroids,Polyps, Pelvic inflammatory disease, Endometriosis,Hypothyroidism,Diabetes. Also stress can cause such symptoms. Also imbalance of hormones estrogen and progesterone can also cause such symptoms.
You will be requiring few tests- including Blood tests, Ultrasound scan, Pap test, Endometrial biopsy. I advise you to see your Gynecologist or possibly see doctor in ER and discuss above tests and get appropriate management.
