Ok, I'm 40 years old and have always had very regular periods all my life.

Hello!

Given your age, it does sound like perimenopause.

Perimenopause, anything can happen.

It's possible, but there have been instances where a woman didn't ovulated and then had prolonged breakthrough bleeding (I've experienced this myself). Sometimes this will resolve on it's own, but for some women medical assistance is necessary.

Since you're still bleeding and it's been 30ish days since you first started bleeding, I'd definitely talk to a doctor. There are things that can help, whether it's perimenopause or something else.
