Abnormal bleeding: Constant meaning everyday? For how long? Are you on Depo-Provera or taking any meds? Are you sexually active? There are many reasons for abnormal bleeding. If you have not done so you should see your doctor for evaluation of this bleeding.

See details: If you are sexually active, the first thing you should do is make sure that you are not pregnant. If you're not pregnant there are many other causes such as hormonal dysfunction and infection. You need to see your gynecologist for a thorough evaluation, physical, and appropriate testing.
Dr. Laura Anissian

Gynecologist: You need to get this evaluated with your gynecologist as soon as possible. You could be losing quite a bit of blood and becoming/are anemic.
