I am a 45-year-old female. Since the past few months my periods have been irregular with heavy bleeding. Earlier I used to complete my daily chores without any problems but nowadays I feel fatigued and weak as well. What can be done to deal with it? Is there any reason to worry? Dr Nupur Gupta Gynaecologist and obstetrician Well Woman Clinic Gurgaon says Before you hit menopause you experience premenopausal symptoms like hot flashes and irregular periods. And then gradually you have light bleeding and irregular periods as you hit menopause. However heavy bleeding is not a sign of menopause.
