Is heavy, frequent and long periods after 40 years normal?
I am a woman over 40, I had 3 full term pregnancies and sterilization after the last. I have been having menstrual cycles every 2 weeks or so and this last cycle started 11 days ago and today I am suddenly bleeding quite heavy again. Is this normal?
Heavy bleeding can occur during the perimenopausal time. However, it is important to undergo a pelvic examination and pelvic ultrasound to rule out any uterine/ovarian pathology. So please follow up with your ObGyn for the necessary evaluation.
