Thank you for your question. Obviously, the additional bleeding
when you have been so regular in the past does mean something. It is hard to say exactly what without more information, however, so it is important to speak with your doctor
. There are many different possibilities, such as potential changes to your overall health or to your reproductive health. There are some lesions that can cause continued bleeding even after your period is over and can be signaled by persistent bleeding. Obviously, different medications such as blood thinners and even many herbal medications can cause changes in the length of your menstrual cycle as well. Even simple things such as weight gain and weight loss
can play a role in the cycle, and so you see that there are many different possible explanations. Speaking with your doctor about the change is an appropriate step to make sure that there is nothing serious underlying this change. Please speak with your doctor about the question that you have asked involving the change in the length of your menstrual cycle and the longer time of your menstrual bleeding.
