I am 49 years old and my periods have been regular, lasting 5 days maximum. This month my period was late and I have been bleeding now for 10 days. Sometimes, going on the toilet, there is no blood and I think that maybe it is finished but then 4 hours later there is lots of bright red blood and some small clots. The blood seems to smell. Is this normal?
