    My last period was 18 years ago when I was 51. I was on the patch for 5 years and used a .50 dosage. Today out of now where I started bleeding. I have a few tumor fibroids but they have not bothered me. My last pap screening was 2 years ago and I have an appointment this Thursday to do a pap smear. Is it normal to get a period at my age or could there be a problem.

    I had all my tests and they all came back negetive. My estrogene level was very high 179 so I was getting hormones from somewhere and the test for ovarian tumor was negetive so next week I am having a D&C. The doctor will take another sample to test and will look into the womb with a camera to see the walls. I do have a tumor fibroid leaning against the back of the inside of the womb. So, so far things don't look too bad.
