This answer was rated:

I am 39 years old and this is the first time I have had a very strange period. I started light bleeding 2 weeks before I was due on. Then I had my normal period for 5 days but then instead of going away I am still seeing blood every day. Not much, but it's there all the time. And it's not like the usual dark blood when you are finishing your period, it's quite fresh and red. Is this normal? It has never happened before and it's not going away.
Usually I see my period on time and it last for a maximum of days, nothing more.
Do you think I need to get my ovaries checked out or something?


I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,it's menometrorrhagia.(prolonged or excessive uterine bleeding occurs irregularly and more frequently than normal).

You should go for pelvic scan to rule out underlying cause like endometriosis, uterine fibroids, hormonal imbalance.

If you had history of contraception use then it can be contributing factor.

You should ignore your bleeding as it can result in anemia.

Make an appointment with your doctor in next few days.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
Waiting for your response.
It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.
