I am 49 and am sure have started my menopause - some hot flushes etc., the last few months especially. For 2 months I missed a period then had one that lasted 3 weeks. Now 3 weeks later again I started bleeding very heavily yesterday with small clots - is this normal?

This scenario is very common. However, it is always a good idea to check with your doctor, they can do a simple test to check your hormone levels and give you a better idea of what is happening. Many women find that the herb Agnus castus can help to regulate the menstrual cycle and reduce flooding at this time. However, it should not be taken if you are still on any hormonal contraception. Make sure you don’t get anaemic as a result of heavy periods as this can cause fatigue, muscle aches and poor hair, skin and nails, Salus Haus has a lovely iron tonic that does not constipate, unlike the normal iron tablets you can get.
