      Hello Cherie, It good to get any unexplained bleeding or breast tenderness checked out by the doctor. Breast tenderness, heavy bleeding or getting the odd period back can be common in the menopause due to the rise and fall of the hormones , and the menopause is not a static state. However, as you are losing clots, the doctor should offer you some sort of treatment, it may be a sign of an infection. A gentle iron tonic can be helpful, in the meantime. Let me know how you get on.

      Hi Mrunmayee It is important that your mum goes back to her doctor and lets them know that she is still getting these heavy periods. Her doctor does need to find out what is causing them and maybe, refer her on to a specialist. Unfortunately, very heavy periods do need to be treated medically, sorry, although she may some of the above tips helpful.
