    Hi Sara

    i would go to see your doctor to check it out. I did have some bleeding when I first went on HRT and was caused by a fibroid which was removed easily and then no more problems.I would always check unusual bleeding with your doctor.

      I saw my doctor on Monday and he didn't seem concerned in the slightest. Said that if it had been happening for 30 days then I should go back but as it was basically 'like it and lump it'.

      Hmm not very helpful doctor !I have always tried to have a female doctor as most of my health problems have been female problems and I think another woman probably in most cases is more understanding ?Your doctor obviously thinks it isn't serious ?

      maybe change your doctor but ask friends etc and get a recommendation.I think a doctor should take the time to explain and reassure you and 30 days is along time to like it or lump it!

    Hi Sara, heavy and long periods of bleeding can happen but as always check with your doctor. I had times where I bled for over a month sometimes so heavy I thougth I would pass out..it started to happen to me when I began to skip periods..I would skip like two then BAM I would get one that would be huge ...a nurse told me that it was the two missed periods all rolled into one...if you feel concerned get checked but just to ease some peace of mind they can get very heavy and can last few weeks. ...good luck!!

    Yes, but I'm way past 19 days!

    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/spotting means low progesterone. Has anyone ever bled this long and then eventually it stopped on its own to get to menopause?

      Hi Fancygoldfish

      i am age 50, i started peri at 40 and i bled for 21 months varying from heavy, light, spotting, lasted 21 months with about two free days in between.. this was how i knew i was peri... 

      i am now 50 and still in peri but nearing full meno as last period was 11 months ago..

      i also tried natural progesterone cream years ago, and it made me have periods/bleed more regularly, and more symptoms i found for me, also it gave me a breast lump i never had before, it was hormonal related and painful like a cyst, i used the natural progesterone cream for about 10 months in total but felt it was confusing my bodies natural path, the big breast lump then went after stopping... menopause is normally reached they say... when no period in a complete 12 months, even then after meno reached a period can still come 😩 jay xx
