Abnormal bleeding prolonged periods
Dr. Suman Rao
Obstetrics and Gynaecology
This can be because of hormonal imbalance. Get your hormones checked on 2nd day of your cycle. Consult a Gynae nearby
Mild Bleeding without menstruation. This is happening from last one week. There is mild pain also. I have consulted a local gynaecologist she told that it is bcoz of weakness. Plz suggest the reason and proper medicine for this
Dr. Megha Tuli
Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Please get a thyroid profile as well as ultrasound done to see what is going on. There is nothing like abnormal bleeding due to weakness. Abnormal bleeding is mostly due to hormonal issues.
