You should not wait for a month bleeding before going to your doctor. You have to go to your doctor immediately.
Usually, if the bleeding does not have a generalized cause for bleeding or an organic cause in the female genital tract, it is termed dysfunctional uterine bleeding and its cause is usually hormonal disturbance, the treatment is to take over by external hormones such as contraceptive pills on the hope that they will regulate the hormonal axis which will become regular and once these are stopped the body will continue regularly in their footsteps.
You have to be examined, may be an ultrasound done and then decide which way to go but you have to go to your doctor now.
Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
