Dear Anon,

Thanks for reaching out to EmpowHer today!

It's normal during the time of (peri) menopause for periods to become irregular, they may be more frequent, late, lighter, heavier. It can be different for each woman. Three weeks is a long time to bleed. I would let your doctor know about this just to be sure nothing else is going on.

Below is a good menopause resource I'd like to share with you.
