Should frequent periods cause you to worry? OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry weighs in on what could be causing a women to have frequent periods and if it might be a cause for concern.
A viewer wrote in and asked The Doctors, "I'm in my 40s and I've gotten my period 3 times in the past 5 weeks. Should I worried or am I just getting old?"
Dr. Nita says she believes this woman is experiencing abnormal uterine bleeding and suggests that she see her doctor or medical care provider.
She goes on to explain as women age, they go through the menopause transition and can experience a change in how the body produces hormones along with menstrual irregularities. She notes these irregularities as someone enters the menopause transition can lead to increased periods.
Dr. Nita explains that one possible solution for this issue could be starting birth control to regulate the period. She stresses that women experiencing frequent or irregular periods need to see their doctor in order to rule out any serious issues and to help regulate your cycles.
