I understand your concern.

Uterine bleeding at irregular intervals especially in between periods is called as Metrorrhagia.
The causes may include uterine fibroid, adenomyosis, endometriosis, hormonal imbalance,IUD induced etc to name a few.

Currently you can take OTC Motrin and do warm compresses on lower back with a heating pad.
You need to be seen by your gynecologist doctor for further pelvic ultrasound.

Hope this helps.
