No, see doctor: The cervix doesn't really have a role in period bleeding or abnormal bleeding - that comes from uterine issues like fibroids or adenomyosis, or hormonal causes. The cervix can bleed from trauma or lesions in the cervix or cervical cancer, but it is not period bleeding. If you have had 4 episodes of bleeding in 8 weeks, you need to see a doctor for evaluation and treatment options.
