I have been on my menstrual cycle now for 3wks?

I’m 39yrs old and have 4 children. I have been on my menstrual cycle now for 3wks. It has stayed at a consistent heavy flow the entire time. I’m wearing super tampons and having to change them at least 6 times or more a day. It doesn’t seem to be slowing at all. My normal cycle is 5 to 7 days with the 1st 3 very heavy and then slowing dramatically the last 3. I’m starting to worry. What can I be?

Age: 39yrs
Medications: None

Hello. 3 weeks is abnormal. Based on your info, I think one possible cause is abnormal uterine bleeding due to hormonal imbalance. You need to consult to first rule out any other problem such as polyps, fibroids, infection. An ultrasound, blood test and culture is recommended. If ruled out, an endometrial biopsy will be needed.to diagnose endometriosis , hormonal imbalance or other problem. Regards
