Can menopause cause scanty periods?

Hi. I am 50 years old. For several years now I had very heavy menstruation during my monthly. Two months ago no period. This mongh and last very little bleeding, mostly just a watery liquid that is clear with no odor. This liquid will gush during jogging or hard laughing, enough to drip down my legs. Is this a normal part of menopause?

Hello sir, My mom aged 47 years is at her perimenopause stage. She had excessive bleeding accompanied by clots. Post consulting a gynecologist she is advised Primolut N and Ultra sound of pelvis. US impression: Bulky uterus (10.3*4.7*5.7 mm), Simple right functional cyst is seen (30*30 mm) and Endometrium CA ?? Post further consultation she is advised D&c ... I would like to understand the following ? Are there chances of showing thickened endometrium (14 mm) during this period ? What is the probability of getting it confirmed as CA ?? Does Primolut N causes nausea, vomiting and change in appetite ? What is recommended course of action ?
