Menstrual cycle wont end

In May I had a cycle that lasted two weeks. Then for over a month nothing. Finally started up and has been going strong for 3 weeks. I am passing lots of clots and fresh red blood. No signs of stopping. Im 46 years old.
Always my cycle has been every 26 days. My Mom died from breast cancer and my first cousin (older in her 60's) had uterine cancer. I bought some progesterone cream hoping it will stop the bleeding. Nothing yet. Cant see the doctor until Aug 18. Are there any tests I should ask for? Im very scared. Thank you/

Go to the Dr or Gyno NOW! There really isn't any time in these kind of matters, you need to hurry up.

Re: Menstrual cycle wont end

Hello OCon,

well I must say that the same thing happend to me from April until about 3 weeks ago.
I was bleeding none stop for about 3 weeks, the same way you describe and then it would stop a few days and then again it would come back less heavy and then stop, ect...We are not the same age, I am only 28 and I had several tests done from May to end of July and was told I have PCOS. I was told to take Diane 35 and Metformin, 3 days after taking these drugs my period stopped totally, no need to wear a pad or anything incase of any surprise leaks. You should get a blood test, check ur blood. My count was so low, I am on some serious iron pills as well. I also did an ultra sound and a pelvis scan to check your ovaries. Good luck...
