  1. Hello,
    You need to get evaluated for PCOD, hypothyroidism and hyperprolactinemia which can be other common causes for irregular menses after pregnancy has been ruled out. In your case , it seems likely to be PCOD, with irregular heavy menstruation and continued as well. Progesterone deficiency should also be rule out which can cause frequent and continued menses.
    PCOD is polycystic ovarian disease which cause increase testosterone levels in women with androgenic features and multiple small cysts in ovaries. Its one of the most common reason for irregular menses, especially oligomenorrhoea. you have to be placed on low dose oc pills with myoinositol supplementation with reduction in weight with exercise and diet and increasing your daily water intake .All these for 3-6 months have been advocated for treatment of PCOD.
