How regular were your periods before May?
Do you use anything for birth control?
Have you had much stress lately? Thank you.

My periods have always been irregular and no birth control and no recent stress
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 2 years ago.
Irregular periods suggest that you may not ovulate very much. When a woman doesn't ovulate, the uterine lining can build up over time. That built-up lining is what can lead to repeated bleeding episodes.
If that's the cause, the some progesterone pills will cause the uterine lining to clean off, and then the repeated periods will stop. I would recommend seeing your doctor for evaluation and probably progesterone treatment. Best wishes.
