Mary Jane Minkin, MD responded:
Dear Ackley1956,
I assure you are saying that you have been bleeding continuously for the last two months. That certainly can occur with perimenopause, but I would check in with your health care provider to make sure there isn't anything unusual (like a polyp, or overgrowth) in the lining of your uterus. In general, the most reliable remedy for this type of bleeding is progesterone therapy; as we go into menopause, we don't ovulate as well (and make less progesterone)-so the addition of some progesterone can help clean things out.
Good luck,
Mary Jane
