I have not had a period for 6 months but now have been bleeding heavily for the past week. Is this normal?

Yes, this is a common occurrence and you may find this happens several times before your periods stop altogether. However, it is a good idea to get it checked out by your doctor and be aware that prolonged heavy bleeding may affect your iron levels, which in turn may cause fatigue and low mood. Check your local health shop for a gut-friendly iron supplement that doesn't constipate.
