i have the period that will not end

Im 46 and I believe I have been in peri for a while now.. this last month my period began on the 31st, then for the next 6 days it was mostly spotting and I was hoping that would be the beginning of the end of them, then for the next 7 days it was like a normal period only heavier for a couple of days and longer. it finally stopped for 2 days and then I've been having spotting ever since. anybody ever have this or anything similar happen to you???. I do have an appointment on Tuesday with my obgyn, but I am beginning to get worried over this. Thanks for any input.

Re: i have the period that will not end

I did try zoloft for a couple of days but then I got a pain in my chest and got scared so of course I stopped.

The gyn I saw the other day wants me to take norethindrone for 12 days then I will have an ultrasound on March 25 (to check for fibroids or polyps- I had small ones a couple of years ago.) Otherwise she thinks this could be hormonal.

I really do not like to take any pills, and I'm hoping I have the courage to take this --I've been not sleeping for 2 days and I'm having heart palps and nervousness over this. (Side effects listed with prescriptions are very scary.)

Thank you
