My period seems to want to stop, but just can't manage to. Can anyone give me an idea of what's going on?

I'm 43, with zero chance of pregnancy.

I had a completely normal (although light) period that began on Christmas Day and ended 3/4 days later. About 5 days after that, AF arrived again - quite heavy with clots (sorry!) for about 4 days but then tailing off, but not stopping completely. For the past week I've had a light but constant brown discharge with occasional red bits. It just doesn't seem to want to stop and I am worrying a bit.

I have made a GPs appointment but can't be seen until the end of next week as it's clearly not an emergency. But I'm just looking for a bit or reassurance in the meantime.

Thanks smile

Not really had any other peri or menopause symptoms, btw.
