Variable: Likely due to irregular ovulation and subsequent issue with a problem in the flow of hormones which create orderly withdrawel. Now, it could be infection, an anatomy issue such as a polyp or, and this is verrrry low, endometrial cancer. After age 35, with bleeding heavier than usual, an endometrial biopsy is indicated it rule out uterine cancer. It's very unusual in those ur age, dont panic.

Need more info.: To give you the best possible advice, we need more info. It would help to know your age, sexual activity, use of contraception and the presence (or absence) of other symptoms such as nausea, breast tenderness & urinary frequency. A home pregnancy test would rule out pregnancy and implantation bleeding. Failure of ovulation during a menstrual cycle can also irregular bleeding & spotting.
