I don't recommend: I'm skeptical any herbal product is a good choice. Some are harmless, many aren't. None are proven, tested, or regulated; the amounts and the ingredients can (and do) change often. Despite the popularity of so-called natural remedies, herbs, and supplements, you don't know what you are taking. If your period 'needs' regulating, finding the reason is easy and a better start than trial-and-error.

Go to the Doctor: No. Bleeding in this scenario is never normal. It can represents a significant problem. Please get in to see your gynecologist urgently.

To be more clear about this...the absence of periods at your age defines menopause. Your uterine lining should be clear; bleeding represents an abnormal growth which can be as benign as a polyp/fibroid or as malignant as a cancer. Please see your GYN for urgent evaluation.
