User avatar It sounds like you are experiencing a hormonal imbalance. This can also indicate possible fertility problems because you may not be ovulating. You should be evaluated by your gynecologist if you want to try to become pregnant. It may be necessary to correct the imbalance first. Also, if blood loss becomes excessive you could become anemic and this would not be a good way to start a pregnancy either.

Good luck.
