Perimenopause bleeding for 5 months

fancygoldfishJuly 22, 2014

I am 57 and have been bleeding off and on, mostly on, for 5 months. I've been using progesterone cream for 2 months, but I don't see any improvement. I'm obese, and I know fat means more estrogen and breakthrough bleeding means low progesterone. Has anyone ever bled this long and then eventually it stopped on its own to get to menopause?

There are any number of women who have bled that long. With your weight issues and your age, you should see your MD to make sure you are not getting an unwanted buildup of tissue in your uterine lining that can, over time, undergo cancerous changes.
