Not likely: First, one does not "go through" menopause. One "arrives"…..There is no turning back! at age 37, it is very doubtful that you are menopausal. You probably do have some perimenopausal ovarian dysfunction, hence the abnormal lab value and hence the abnormal bleeding. Clonidine is not the answer.
