I got a regular period, that was a lot heavier than normal.

I was taking birth control pills for many years. I suddenly went off them and wasnt getting my period( for about 2-3 mos), so my dr did a blood test to check for menopause. It showed I am in menopause and he said I wouldnt get any more periods. a month or so later, I had some spotting. the next month, I got a regular period, actually a lot heavier than normal. so he told me to go back on the pill. whats going on? is this normal? I m 45

Hormonal variation causes menopause. Generaly it takes time for complete cessation of menstural cycles in premenopausal phase.
