are very heavy periods normal for pre-menopause?
I'm 50; still having periods. I thought they'd be getting lighter and less frequent, but instead they have become MUCH heavier. If one comes a little later it's like it was "making up for lost time". Last month I couldn't even leave the house on day 1 or 2; I'd soak through a tampon and a napkin by the time I got to the door. I think I spent most of those 2 days changing them. I had to cancel everything I had planned for those days. I went to my gyne doctor a few days later but she couldn't really tell me anything. I have fibroids but she said they are shrinking.
Is this typical?
