Until now my periods have always been very regular and easy to manage, but now, I have been having a period for over six weeks and at times it is extremely heavy. I have been tested to see if my hormone levels are indicating that i am going through the menopause, but the results show normal levels, so i am worried about what is going on. has anyone else experienced this?

I've posted a similar question last week. I was experiencing abnormal bleeding for 2 months and heavy for a week and finally it stopped last week. How old are you? I'm 47 and at this age, probably it's perimenopause. If you are still worried, you should talk to you doctor and get some tests done, like ultrasound and biopsy to rule out other things that can cause abnormal bleeding.
