DUB: You may have DUB (dysfunctional uterine bleeding), a common occurrence caused by continuous estrogen stimulation to your uterus. Did you have a recently positive pregnancy test? Are you taking hormonal contraceptives with recent dose change? You can watch your periods for 3 months since DUB may correct itself. If not, see your clinician. Hope that helps.

Abnormal: So certainly that is abnormal. Likely some sort of hormonal problem. Should have an evaluation both for your own sanity as well as to make sure it is not indicative of a bigger problem. the most likely problem is with ovulation
