Irregular bleeding: Any woman of fertile age who has an irregular. Must consider the possibility that she is pregnant. A pregnancy test is necessary, perhaps a blood test. Other possibilities include anatomical issues with the uterus. I would have a pelvic ultrasound to look at the possibility of a fibroid or perhaps a polyp. And ovarian cyst that is functioning and making hormones can also cause this.
