Re: Heavy Bleeding
i got my last period in feb 2006 and i was 53 and a half. i started a thread, way back when, about how old the oldest lady still having periods was and you would be very surprised to know that there are a lot of ladies out there still having regular periods into their late 50's, some into their 60's. you have a way to go yet to break any records!!!
as for 'heavy' periods, i always reckoned mine were 'heavy' if i bled huge amounts over a short length of time, rather than prolonged (3-4 weeks) bleeding. i too experienced losing large clots (although none the size of grapefruits!), had very heavy periods, prolonged bleeding, periods lasting 2 days, bleeding for one day then a week without then 3 more days of bleeding - you name it, i think we all get it at some point before we finish completely. if you're worried though, go and speak to your doctor and have your mind put at rest. good luck.
