Endometriosis : Endometriosis itself does not usually cause the kind of bleeding you describe, but it can be a contributing factor. With your history of abnormal pap smears you really need to see a good gynecologist right away to get the bottom of this problem and make sure you don't have a cancer causing the bleeding.

Hx of irregular/skipping periods can result in build up of lining in uterus then heavy/irreg bleeding; thyroid problms, polyps, precancerous changes or cancer(of cvx or ut), ovarian cysts, fibroids can cause.Need to see gyn dr.
