Periods irregular
I am 42 years old and gave birth to two children (18 and 16 years of age). I have a pacemaker and use Coversyl and Eltroxin.
My problem started about 4 years ago, my menstrual periods got very irregular. Sometimes 35 days sometimes the usual 28 days and sometimes just 20 days. However the last three months I get my period every 14 days. The flow is sometimes light and sometimes very heavy.

You should see a gynaecologist to check if there is any problem with the uterus or cervix.
