Does heavy bleeding occur before menopause?

The answer to this question is not entirely clear. There is some evidence that heavy bleeding may occur before menopause, but the research on this topic is still relatively limited. It’s possible that heavy bleeding may be a symptom of perimenopause, which is the transition period leading up to menopause. During perimenopause, hormone levels fluctuate and can cause changes in the menstrual cycle, including longer or shorter periods, or heavier or lighter bleeding.
