20 day Menstrual cycle

I have non stop bleeding during perimenopause? I am 47 and was already diagnosed as being in preimenopause and in the last year I have been given several biopsy because my periods last for about 20 to 30 days straight. All test were negative. I will skip a month or 2 before my period returns again for about 20 to 30 days straight is this normal? It is so frustrating. How long is this supposed to go on?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Chances of DUB, endometritis, endometrial hyperplasia, anemia, bleeding disorder etc., could be possibilities for the prolonged period that you describe. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination and evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms and regulate your periods. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
