It is very common to experience irregular and heavy periods during menopause. Due to the changes occurring in the body and the hormonal system, it is usual for women to experience changes in the menstruation like heavy bleeding, spotting or no periods followed by heavy bleeding. Before your periods stop completely, they generally become either more closely or widely spaced. This irregularity may last for 1 - 3 years before menstruation finally ends completely.
