Do you know what the ultrasound showed?
Did your GP give you anything for the bleeding? Thanks.
Most likely the bleeding is due to hormonal changes (which have caused the uterine lining to be thick and bleed more), and will require hormones to resolve. If the bleeding is too heavy, you might need a D&C to clean off the lining and stop the bleeding.
Usually bleeding will be less if you're lying down, regardless of the cause, so I'd continue to do that plus take ibuprofen. Since it's just 4 hours, I think you'll be fine, but if the bleeding is really excessive, you might need to call for an ambulance.
Once you see the doctor, your blood count can be checked and a decision made as to whether hormones will take care of the bleeding or a D&C is needed. Best wishes.
With no bleeding for 10 years, it sounds like your ovaries were shut down for some reason, and then they woke up again. I don't have enough information to know just why this all occurred. Weight changes, stress, thyroid problems are some of the possibilities.
No, your doctor will figure it out from the information you've told me, plus testing.
You're very welcome.
