Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I am on the list to see a gyn but I have 25 weeks yet to wait already been waiting 16

It sounds like the bleeding you're having is due to not ovulating regularly. Ovulation is what causes regular, normal periods.

I think that you need testing to check out how often you ovulate. If it's not very often, then there are pills you can take each month that help you ovulate. Once you ovulate every month, you will have normal periods, until you get pregnant.

Since you have 6 months to see a doctor, can you go private? Best wishes.

How do I check that out do I make an appointment with a gp? And thank you so much for help most help I've had since this all started

I'm in the US, so I don't know just how things work in the UK. If there is a GP that you can see outside the NHS, I would do so.
