I too am experiencing a very prolonged period this month. It began on the 2nd of Feb and hasn't shown any sign of stopping. Also I have had some plum sized "jelly" like clots as well as bright red bleeding. I will be 50 in August and have had "regular" cycles since I was 13. I had 3 pregnancies resulting in 3 children - all healthy! I have no idea if this is menopause but this seems extreme. Also I am extremely tired and achy all over. Should I worry?
