Question: Please Doctor, is bi-weekly heavy clotting menstrual flow the large stage of perimemopausal process in women. does a woman have breast cancer after permanent stop of menstruation, and how long does perimenopausal signs last. Thanks, eagerly awaiting response.
Heavy flow which occurs biweekly occurring during your perimenopausal phase may suggest a uterine pathology. A transvaginal scan with both endometrial biopsy and cervical screen is advised. Breast cancer during the post menopausal phase is not unusual. What you need is a daily breast examination and once yearly mammogram if you are above 35yrs or breast scan if you are less than 35yrs. Perimenopausal phase may last for up to 3-5yrs.
