bleeding AGAIN
My previous period ended little more than a week ago and now I''m bleeding again. Not spotting, a proper period. I''m 48, not using any hormone pills but I do use blood-pressure pills and anti-depressants. Is this just normal peri-menopause hormonal disturbance or should I go and see a doctor? I have had shorter cycles than normal lately, with only 2 weeks off between periods sometimes, but this is ridiculous.

thanks for your advice.

You should see a doctor. In menopause your periods should get lighter and further apart.
