Getting a period at 67 years old.

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.

This is not a menstrual period; rather, it is abnormal vaginal bleeding. It may have started if one of those fibroids expanded into a blood vessel, triggering the bleeding.

It is good you are getting this looked into medically.
