I am 53 years old I have not had a period for over a year and 2 weeks ago I started bleeding heavily, bad cramping, bad headaches, and nausea after eating. Is this normal?

Dear lem1606,
Your bleeding may well turn out to be just some spontaneous ovarian activity, but as it has been over a year since your last period, you need to check in with your health care provider. (s)he may start with an ultrasound to look at the lining of your uterus-but do check in with your provider.
good luck,
Mary Jane
