Thank you for the question.
When did you last do your pap smear? What was the result?
Do you have any other symptoms such as abdominal pain or vaginal discharge?
In this case with a normal pap smear and no concerning symptoms such as pain or discharge the likely cause for the excessive bleeding is a hormonal imbalance. Please wait for your complete blood count and thyroid hormone results. An alternation of thyroid hormones is a common cause for such bleeding. A low thyroid hormone may cause this excess bleeding and also mild weight gain. So, if you are also having other symptoms of low thyroid hormone then this is likely to be the cause for the excessive bleeding. This reduction in thyroid hormone can be easily treated and the levels of the thyroid hormone will become normal. With the correction of thyroid hormone abnormality, your bleeding will also become normal. So, at present, this is not alarming or worrisome and you should not be scared about this. This does not mean that there is any severe underlying disease which is causing the bleeding. You can safely relax.
