i am 46 and typically have heavy periods. going back 3 months ago i had a heavy cycle for 6 days, stopped for 10 days then had another full cycle for 6 days which never really stopped. I have now had daily bright red spotting for 2 months. I have been chalking this up to menopause, now I wonder if I should have other concerns

Hi well come to Hcm.
Definately this is not related to menapause. you got to consult your doctor immediately to rule out any alarming situation like malignancy of genital tract any
where could be in urerus, cervix etc. It can be even hormonal, so your visit to doctor
is must. Thanks

Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, such type of bleeding what you mentioned is not due to menopause. you shouls rule out any uterine prob like bulky uterus, fibroid, if you do not found any thing then this is due to DUB. you should consult n discuss it with your doc as soon as possible n start proper treatment as it is cause of sever anemia. in most cases hysterectomy is choice of treatment.
