Patient

Q: Hello I'm 47 and since 2004 doctors say I have been in peri menopause. I have skipped two month then got it back with heavy bleeding blood clots every month coming a week early every month. then I went to bleeding three months straight getting low iron again told I was hitting menopause. Went on a iron pill and started having a period every two weeks with heavy bleeding to back on track until may 2014 when I stopped having a period until now in September I am spotting off and on, not enough to wear a pad but enough to where I 'm wet. Please is this menopause and when will it hit, enough is enough and I need to know. Please help.
