I'm fifty years old. I thought I was going through the changes of life and was happy and excited. Now I'm not so happy and more concerned. I missed one period and then the next month it did not start; my cycle was small amount and then it got to be more. After six days I thought it was over then about mid-day of the seventh day I flooded. I cleaned myself up and saw nothing else. On the eighth day each time I went to the restroom I would pass big lumps and could feel them as they passed. Now on day thirteen it is still the same. My husband and I had sex and after we finished I went to clean up sat on toilet and filled it with blood and clots. I washed up and padded myself down and went off to sleep, woke the next morning with very little on the pad.
