Hi Anon,

Thank you for visiting the EmpowHER community and sharing your question. It's no fun to be bleeding for the last two weeks. Typically when a woman reaches the age of 50, things start changing. Many women experience a sudden change in their menstrual cycle and some experience some gradual changes leading up to perimenopause and menopause.

Perimenopause can begin in your 40's and into your 50's. It is quite possible that this is what you are experiencing. I included a link about it for you to check out. If in doubt, give your Gynecologist a call and schedule an appointment.


Anon, did you find this helpful?
