I am 50 years old and hadn't had a period for 3+ years. What is happening?

Hi Anon

Thank you for your post!

Sounds like you are well in post- menopause since you haven't had a period in three years. A woman is considered post-menopausal when she hasn't had her period in over 12 months.

Therefore you need to have a checkup to see what this bleeding means. We can only offer suggestions as to what this may be - cysts, fibroids or some kind of imbalance but this bleeding should not be considered normal or part of menopause.

Please keep us posted-
