I have been on my period for two months strait. I'm usually very regular. I'm 50, so am i going through menopause? I also check my blood pressure, and it is high. I wasn't sure if the bleeding was related to menopause or high blood pressure.
High : High blood pressure does not affect your periods. Your abnormal bleeding could be due to hormonal changes as you get closer to menopause, but i recommend seeing an ob/gyn to make sure there is nothing to worry about. As well as an examination, possible tests include hormonal blood tests to check if you are heading into menopause, a pap smear if you haven't had one in the last year, and an ultrasound scan to check for fibroids and to measure the lining of your uterus - if it's thickened you may have a polyp (a growth inside your uterus), or you may need an endometrial biopsy to check for precancerous changes in the lining of the uterus. Fibroids and polyps are both very common. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
