Customer Question

Dear dr. I am 32 year old woman. From the age of 16 my periods had all ways been the same - once a month, pretty heavy, lasting around 8 days. Now, for the past 6 months, I get around 4 per month but they are very light and never last more than 2 days. If that. I am also bleeding after sex. What could this be?

In most cases it is hormonal.

Your doctor must check you for
Thyroid problems.
Liver or kidney problems.
Uterine problems.
Ovarian problems.

These also need to be ruled out.
