Hi and welcome to HCM!
Thanks for posting your query here.
In general females attain menopause
at around 40years. While attaining there will be some irregularities like increased or decreased blood flow, changes in the cycle length. The other conditions which will cause increased menstrual flow and shortening of periods are fibroids, iron deficiency
anaemia, endometrial cancers.
Fibroids are a collection of the fibroid tissue within the uterus. It is due to the hormonal
changes. The large surface area of the fibroid is responsible for the bleeding. Low iron levels in the body causes irregularities in the menstrual cycle. Endometrium is the inner lining of the uterus and is influenced by oestrogen. If this undergoes hyperplasia
it results in excessive bleeding. An endometrial biopsy
and D&C will be helpful.
All these can be diagnosed by an ultrasonogram and by an physical exam. The treatment depends on the disease condition. Please consult your gynae to confirm the diagnoses without any delay.
Hope this is helpful to you.
