What does it mean when your period doesn't stop?

My periods have always lasted for 3 days, 4 at the most. This time, I'm on Day 10. What is going on? I've been having hormone problems for years, and think I am perimenopausal. I'm 37 and have night sweats for the past 7 years. But, of course, the doctors all act like it's "all in my head". I haven't been to the doctor yet with this, and thought I'd get more answers here. Can anyone help?

Re: What does it mean when your period doesn't stop?

I have the same problem. This is the second month of a period that is lasting too long. I am 45 and have been told I have fibroids which I think is a lot to do with the bleeding and passing of clumps (yuck) of blood.

What I'm going through now is mostly just clumps. And it's like black dried blood. (Double yuck.) Sometimes it sucks being a woman.
