Peri menopause or menopause

I am 49 years old & in October got my period on the 44th day of my cycle.  I usually have 26 day cycles.  I got my period on Nov 25 & it did not stop since that time.  I tried a course of birth  control for 14 days & it did not help.  I have apptmnt with gyn for testing.  Is this menopause?? How can bleeding stop? I am petrified of cancer - help!!!

HI,
Irregular and excessive bleeding is not a sign of menopause. An examination by a gynaecologist and an ultrasound scan will make matters clear. The bleeding can be stopped with medicines in the form of haemostatic agents and hormonal therapy.
Hope this helps.
