Irregular unknown bleeding after 3rd baby

desperate for some advice, Im 25 and had my 3rd baby on 7th January, all normal pregnancy and delivery, I bled for 6 weeks afterwards ( normal for me ) then a month later I got my 1st period which lasted 10 days ( normal would be 7 days for me ) then a month later on 23rd April my 2nd period began and still hasn't stopped! I've been to the doctors several times, had blood tests, swabs, smear test, internal and external ultrasound, all test came back fine, still waiting on results from smear test and the ultrasound found a tiny cyst on one of my ovaries, but other than that the sonographer said all is fine and couldn't see any issues or where the bleeding is coming from, she said I will need to go back in a few months for a repeat scan to check in the cyst but other than that I'm just left to get on with it, I've tried tranexamic acid and northesterone twice and neither has worked, I'm so done with this issue, surprisingly my iron levels are fine but I'm wearing 2 maternity pads and changing every 30 mins to an hour, I can't leave the house without needing to change clothes ASAP, anyone know of any other medication I can ask the Dr for or any advice would be greatly appreciated as no one seems to take me seriously sad I've had to push for all these test and medications my self

Hi

Have you been seen by a gynaecologist or has this been managed only by your GP? If gp then you need to push for a referral to a gynaecologist. I had my third baby last year and in March started having some spotting between periods. My GP referred me to a gynae who did usual blood tests, uktrasound internal and external, smear and swab. The ultrasound indicated endometriosis and my hornones are also a bit all over the place which they thought was causing the problems do she thought all would settle down (which it seems to)But she did say that if the spotting didn't stop she would do a hsyteroscopy and an endometrial biopsy.
In your case , given that you are still bleeding and nothing has shown up so far then you need to see a gynae who can take control and do further tests if need be.

Hi. I had a baby six months ago and have been spotting/bleeding in between irregular period cycles. They did my blood and found out I had low estrogen levels. Have they mentioned anything about your hormone levels?
