isn't 56 too old for periods?
I have a friend who is going to be 56 years old and still has her periods every month. Sometimes they're quite heavy and long, and many times she'll start a second period before the month has ended. Has anyone else every heard of this? I know everyone goes through menopause at different ages but I've honestly never heard of anyone this old still having them. She did question her doctor about it and the doctor didn't seem too concerned, just told her she can't 'make' her periods stop and they will when her body is ready. Am I being concerned for nothing?
