Thanks for your query.
Please dont panic, as this kind of heavy bleeding could be due to various reasons.
The commonest reason is that at 42, you would be prone to hormonal imbalances, which could result in abnormal thickening of the lining of the uterus - known as endometrial hyperplasia
Obesity, polycystic ovaries
- all predispose to this condition.
Also, endometrial polyps, cysts in the ovaries, fibroids could cause this.
you need to have a pelvic ultrasound
, and complete blood assessment to know the diagnosis.
All the best.
