This may not be menopause. This needs to be checked out as this can be caused by following of the reasons;

1) Uterus fibroid

2) Uterus polyps

3) Endocervical polyp

4) Endometrial issues.

5) Hormonal problem.

A fortnight long bleeding can cause anemia. You need blood work for the hormones and an ultrasound as early as possible for the evaluation.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
