Doubt pregnancy: Heavy bleeding is inconsistent with pregnancy. If you had been pregnant, you are miscarrying, but based on what you shared it sounds like you had a period in early April, once more sometime between now and April and then again in July? Long cycles can be due to anovulation or not releasing an egg. if you begin to soak a maxi pad per hour for 3 or more hours, seek emergency care.
