Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Yes correct it is.

You are not ovulating --hence no progesterone production.

Continued estrogen action can result in light bleeding for long time.

Progesterone supplementation will stop the bleeding.

Please see your doctor about it.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
