This is Dr. David

it can be normal in some women to still have their monthly menstrual cycle at age 57

that is good your pap smear was normal

you should get an abdominal ultrasound and uterine ultrasound

you could have a uterine fibroid which is causing more heavy bleeding and clots.

if you are having monthly periods, you would not be pregnant.

your gyn doctor should be willing to do a uterine ultrasound for you.

I am not worried about uterine cancer which would cause bleeding all the time, not just once a month.

let me know if you have questions.
