Hi, I am 47 and in the height of the peri
For a couple of years, my periods have changed, they were always 24 days in my cycle, then they changed to anything between 12 and 50 days ! The amount of bleeding didn't change however, just sometimes heavy sometimes not.
My last period started on 28th May and has just gone on and on. After about two and a half weeks it subsided to just a pink discharge, but still I had to use a pad or liner all the time. Then on day 23 of that period (!) - 19th June, I had a really bad flood. I was actually sat in a meeting at work and it soaked through my clothes onto the chair, as I was only wearing a liner, as had no idea I was going to bleed heavy again ! It was awful. Now it is the 26th June and I am still bleeding. Not much blood on pad overnight and got up and took a shower and a huge clot came away!
I saw my doctor last week, the day of the flood, but before it happened. She did an internal exam and said she couldn't see much blood, she took swabs and is also arranging a scan, I last had one in May 11, which was all Ok and smear in May 12 was all good.
Doctor thinks it will just be peri. Just ! I just want this continuous bleeding to stop, I'm going on holiday at the weekend and don't want this.
