Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.
I am sorry for your symptoms.
In perimenopausal period, the period can vary.
In perimenopause, the period can be short or long.
Bleeding can be heavy or little.
You may have missed period too.
As the bleeding is excessive, I would suggest to have a gynecological evaluation.
Doctor can take pelvic examination, ultrasound, hormone study to know the precise cause.
Other issues need to be checked for.
Uterine changes, infection, pelvic congestion can be other factors.
Systemic illness, coagulation disorder, medication can cause bleeding too.
All those should be investigated.
Prolonged heavy bleeding can cause anemia,
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your good health.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
Regards.
