Anything is possible when our hormones go a bit out of whack.  We all get these types of crazy periods during perimenopause.

If this is the first time that she's experienced something like this, she may just want to wait and see how this goes and whether it ends normally and keep a record of how it all went with details as you've done here in your post.  

If she doesn't feel well and this is becoming annoying or making her feel unwell, it's best to run this past her doctor and see what he/she has to say about it.  

In the meantime, she should try taking a pain reliever like Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin etc.) and keeping her feet up if her flow is still heavy.
