I am 53 & have always had irregular periods - 15 to 45 days
in between periods; 5 to 16 days
long. When I turned 49, the periods were shorter in between, but longer in duration. Since then, I would have a few hrs when the flow would be very heavy, then "normalize". I have 3 fibroids; I go for
annual pap smears, and had 2 uterine biopsies ('05 & '06) to rule out cancer for
the long lasting periods. In Nov.'06, I had a 12 day period, then no periods until Apr.
