Re: Is it normal to have heavy bleeding during menopause?
The 3-4 years leading up to my perimenopausal symptoms becoming severe consisted of very, very, heavy periods to the point that I thought I was hemorrhaging! I whined about this to my ex-ob/gyn for several years until she finally decided to do a sonogram. Well, I had a polyp and fibroids. The polyp was removed which reduced the bleeding quite a lot, but I'm still having labor pain cramps that have frozen me in pain crying like a baby. I remember laying on my sofa in pain and crying waiting for my family to return home to give me something for the pain. Not only was the pain severe, but I felt that if I sat or stood up my uterus, intestines, and other parts would surely have dropped to my knees!!!!!!!
