long periods
I started my period 2 weeks ago. I just spotted and flowed pretty light the first week.   After 6 days since I was not flowing very hard my husband and I had intercourse. Afterward I started bleeding again. I just figured it was because I hadn't had a very heavy period, but since then I have had a period for the next  9 days. I am 49 and I have always had pretty regular periods, even if I missed a month my next one would be a normal 5-7 days. I am going on my 3rd week. I have had a slight headache, but not any cramps. I'm not flowing heaving, and their aren't any clots or anything.  Is this just part of perimenopause?  I have just never had a period last this long.  Any suggestions, before I call my doctor?

I would call my doctor.  Most women I know experienced some of the type of bleeding you're describing, I firmly believe in erring on the side of caution.  I listened to friends tell me that my bleeding was "normal" for perimenopause and I waited until I had a severe health crisis.  If you're uncomfortable with what is happening, definitely call your doctor.
