    can anyone have any potential answers for me???

    It is unlikely all this bleeding is due to menstrual periods. For some reason, you are having abnormal vaginal bleeding.

    This needs to be looked into medically. Please make an appointment with your gynecologist. They will likely order some tests to rule out issues such as uterine fibroids (or more serious tumor issues) as a potential cause for this bleeding.

    also, were you taking hormonal birth control during the time your period was "normal." going off the pill can cause some irregular bleeding until you normalize again and/or if you were never regular to start with (pre-pill) you likely won't be normal post-pill.
