      Hiya Jackie, Irregular or erratic periods are common on the approach to the menopause, some women report that they can go from heavy to light and stop and start. Periods can come back if you change or improve your diet or exercise regime. However, if they are heavy or you have clotting, it is best to get it checked out by the doctor. It is usually nothing to worry about and just the way the hormones are falling. An iron tonic could be helpful here.

      It's a nightmare to be honest. I seen my dr last year when it happened and was offered tablets but I never took them because I think it was a waste of time as they would only slow things down, then she offered me the coil I said no not at my age lol I asked about a hysterectomy and she said no as I wasn't in a lot of pain so how long will this keep going I just want it to end, I really hope things get better for you also, jenny x

      Hi Jenny and Nora, If you are bleeding heavy or experience prolonged periods or clots, although it is common at the start of the menopause. It is not good for you if it continues and it can leave you very fatigued. I often suggest an iron tonic to help. Symptoms are different for each woman and can vary due to health, stress, diet and lifestyle. It is difficult to pin point an end time as such. In the case of heavy bleeding it is important to get some sort of treatment even in the short term if you find it affecting the quality of your life. As over the counter medication such as Tranexamic acid to help stop heavy bleeding or the herbal remedy Agnus castus (this can take 2/3 cycles to work) may not be strong enough anyway.

      Hi Tracy This is quite common as your periods start to change but it could also be triggered by the fibroids so it is important to get this checked out by your doctor. This kind of period could also cause low iron so ask your doctor to check for this too.
