In brief: May be infection

You should have an evaluation.
Bleeding between cycles can be caused by an infection like chlamydia. Other causes can be due lack of ovulation, uterine fibroids or hormonal imbalance such as an underactive htyroid. You can not conceive if you are not having a normal ovulation each month.
