Customer Question

Good Afternoon...I am a 48 yr old female in GREAT HEALTH...I have been menustrating since Age 13 and it has always been regular at the same time for EXACTLY 7 days for 35+ years...For the last 2 months, I have been having irregular menstruals...Last month my menstrual lasted 10 days (very unusual) AND this month, I have been bleeding for over 2 weeks (still heavy and clotting and looks like no end in sight)...I realize I could be starting menopause, but I don't know that for sure...I don't have medical insurance so I haven't been seeing a PCP or going to the hospital due to the expense, which I can't financially afford...Does any of this sound familiar and if so, what should I be doing?

Welcome to just answer.

It sounds like menopause.

This is common.

We answer question only on the site.

We do not in any way replace a doctors visit.

Can you tell me exactly what your questions are?
