I am 50 years old (pretty sure I'm perimenopausal) I started my period April 15 and now on April 29 I'm still flowing very heavy and cramping. Is this normal?

Nope, not normal. You need to see your doctor.

Unfortunately, this can happen during perimenopause. If it continues, there are meds your doctor can prescribe to stop or reduce the flow. And if your cycles continue to be whacky, birth control pills can normalize them if you are a good candidate (not overweight and a non-smoker).
