Depends: There are so many factors that can affect a period or cause bleeding. Evaluation by a clinician can sort things out. Difficult to give a short answer without a full history, physical exam and potentially labwork. Changes in hormones, pregnancy, medical conditions, infection are all possible causes of bleeding.
