Hey Kiki,

I am 40 and I have been researching the same issue because of an identical problem. Just to calm you down - nothing to worry about. I just read that this condition happens only twice: once when you are within the first two years of your first period, because your ovaries are still maturing and second, when you are around 40. It's all hormonal imbalance - not enough progesterone, to clear the uterus. If you get excessive bleeding or blood clots, which can endanger you by causing you to become anemic, you'll need to see a professional doctor, a good specialist. There are a number of things they can offer you, but the best for me was to get some progesterone to regulate my periods. It didn't help with the blood clots, though. For this there is a procedure to thin the lining of the uterus, but I don't think this is a good idea for you to mess with your uterus at a young age. Check your thyroid. And pituitary gland. That is the root of the problem. Hormonal imbalance. And also, prayer can help a lot.
For wisdom and healing. Best wishes, N. Smith
