I'm going through menopause now. Is it necessary that I meet a physician or is it normal? My flow is heavy sometimes.

In brief: Menopause
Menopause is a normal transition of life for women--it is not a disease.
See a physician if you are terribly symptomatic and desire relief.

In brief: Depends
It's normal to have heavy periods while going through menopause.
They may also come more frequently than you're used to. If you're concerned about any symptoms you should see your doctor, but menopause is a normal transition and many women don't need to see a doctor.
