These : These are very abnormal symptoms and you need to have a complete gynecological evaluation. Infection, dysfunctional uterine bleeding (from hormone changes), an abnormal pregnancy, or cervical problems can cause these symptoms. Please have a complete gynecological evaluation. If you develop heavy bleeding, lightheadedness, fever, or pain then you must be seen as an emergency.

DUB: Dysfunctional uterine bleeding has many causes, so you should seek an ob/gyn to perform a speculum examination and possibly hysteroscopy. Hormonal therapy such as oral contraception may beneficial.
