Bleeding like crazy, what is this?

I am 47 years old..have always been regular, even to the day///
I was 3 weeks late this month..never late unless pregnant and then when it started I have been bleeding like crazy...it is my 10th day and doesn't look like it is going to end soon..have clots..it is freaking me out because it feels like it will never end and I can feel it running out and that is getting on my nerves..don't know if this is menopause..don't want to go to the dr. til it is gone, but don't know when that will be or if I need to.
Can I bleed too much? I sure can't imagine doing this every month...that would really be bad..I have ruined so many underwear, pajamas, clothes, sheets and don't want to go out because it feels so gross..anyone have this or can tell me when it should subside or if I should see doc or if one can even go to the dr. with this much bleeding?

Re: Bleeding like crazy, what is this?

Hi,
I know how you feel. I was regular until recently. Know I am skipping periods and having very heavy ones with clots. My GYN said this is very common for peri-menopause. The only problem I had was I let the heavy bleeding go on too long without getting my iron checked. I went to the Dr. this fall and was very anemic. Started on iron pills and my hemoglobin has raised to a good number. Check with your Dr. I was given samples too of a low dose BCP. I haven't started it yet, thought I would see if my blood count would stay up without taking it. Funny how many of us have the same things going on. Good to have others to compare with. Take care, Ann
