Hi, Leslie. I still don't know---and never will---what caused my menstrual problems. I was a suspicious character for years (
) but didn't have anything that looked "lupus-possible" to my drs. until the recurrent rashes in my late 30's.
I'm sure drs. today know much more about this sort of bleeding than they did 35 years ago. Main thing is to allow them to evaluate what's going on with you now, in the context of what's already known about you---so I'm really glad you contacted your rheumie's staff for advice. Post us when you're able, OK? Thinking of you, Vee
