As you have had no periods for last one year and recent heavy bleeding is not normal .

This suggests something acute has happend in Genital tract .

Stress contributes to have emotional disturbances and hormonal imbalance that aggravates issues .

It would be ideal for you to have Ultrasonography to evaluate your genital organs for any cute change please so that appropriate treatment may be offered to you .

Regards ***** ***** luck .
