Dear customer, it is a pleasure to be able to assist you today; what you are experiencing is dysfunctional uterine bleeding, probably due to the stress you have had after the move, this type of situation can trigger hormonal and endocrinological alterations that can cause bleeding outside the menstrual cycle, your doctor may consider the possibility of performing a pelvic ultrasound, a cervicovaginal cytology and blood tests in which the levels of certain specific hormones such as follicle stimulating hormone, estrogens, lutein, estradiol and progesterone that could be altered, also producing this situation, that will help us determine if you require some hormone therapy. I would like you to keep me informed of your health situation; I will be happy to assist you and guide you in any way I can, and I will be attentive to any additional questions about it through my profile indicated in the following link
