Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

Your age is corresponding to an age nearing menopause. Before attaining menopause many woman of this age group will experience different bleeding patterns. Heavy and light bleeding is common and prevails for an year and the cycles can also get irregular.
However, it is recommended that you consult a gynecologist for an examination and investigations to rule out other causes of irregular cycles like fibroid uterus, adenomyosis, endometrial hyperplasia, thyroid dysfunction, anemia, nutritional deficiencies, obesity, stress, hormonal imbalance, etc.

Hope this was helpful.
Regards
