Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having bleeding/a period for more than 2 weeks can most likely be due to perimenopause between ages 45 and 55.

Your symptoms are suggestive of peri-menoapuse.

In the coming months,you may notice some more changes in your periods like irregularity,heavy or prolonged period or light period or missed periods.These are normal changes of menstrual cycle before they completely stopped due to menopause.

So you may notice these & other changes for next few of your cycles.

Please do not worry. There is nothing serious or dangerous about this.

You need a hormonal check up & other tests.. A pelvic exam is required to rule out any uterine abnormality, a cervical polyp or fibroid, or a uterine infection.Also you need an ultrasound to evaluate the uterus, the ovaries and the fallopian tubes.

So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your gyne doctor to have the tests & examination done so as to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.

Thank you

Please leave positive rating above the chat box so I can get credit for helping you today ,we only get after positive feedback.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
