In brief: No easy answer

Irregular bleeding should be evaluated by your doctor. Most often this is a benign problem but cancer has to be ruled out.
Once this is accomplished correction of the bleeding problem can usually be corrected.

There is no set rule for the amont of time someone is in perimenopause but generally it is thought to be about 10 years. You would not want to go that long though because it could lead to uterine cancer or be a sign of something else going wrong. Definitely needs to be evaluated.

I would NOT wait for 'YEARS' of perimenoausal bleeding before seeking attention.There are SIMPLE tests done within one week at your GYN which diagnoses your condition.This would lead to discussion of SIMPLE minimally invasive office procedures to take care of the abnormal bleeding.Why suffer?
