- Question from Teresa: I am currently on Navelbine, Herceptin, and Aredia. I am a 52-year old premenopausal woman with regular periods. About 5 weeks ago I started bleeding and have not stopped yet. Is this normal? Does this happen when you go into menopause?
- Answers - Patricia A. Ganz, M.D. Sometimes during the beginning of menopause, there can be irregular or heavy bleeding. But this is a very long time to have bleeding and you should definitely see a gynecologist.
- Lillie Shockney, R.N., B.S., M.A.S. And have some blood work done.
