dear customer,

Thank you for information,

The increased bleeding , amenorrhea, irregular periods and such symptoms is likley to be due to the hormonal influence.

The menoapuse at this age of 49 is likley to the reason for your symptoms.

You may have the relevant investigations done like serum fsh, serum lh, and serum estrogen, sonography uterus, etc to know the associated abnormality.

The other causes should also be ruled out.

Let me know if you have any doubt.


Thank you!
