Why am I having irregular periods?
Q: I am a 39 years old woman who has been experiencing irregular periods for the last 6-8 months. My periods are either 3-4 weeks late or I have bleeding for over 10 days. My normal cycle was 26 days. I am a mother of three children and do not wish to get pregnant again. Can I use Primolut Nor to regularise my periods? Please suggest.
A:Any irregular heavy bleeding must be investigated especially because you are almost 40 and in the peri-menopausal period. See a gynaecologist – a trans vaginal sonography (TVS) and a dilatation and curettage is essential. You cannot take medication on your own.
