Is this related to menopause?
I am 48 years old. My periods have been very irregular this whole year. I didn't have my period for about 6 months and then recently I had 2 periods that were pretty heavy.
I've had abdominal pain for a while. I had it for about 1-2 months and then it went away for 3-4 months. Now I have abdominal pain again, almost every day. The location of the pain varies. Sometimes it is in the lower abdomen , sometimes it is much higher up, under the rib cage. I've had ovarian cysts in the past and also uterine fibroids.
I had my annual physical about 2-3 months ago and the doctor said that he can't feel anything unusual when examining my abdomen.
Does the above sound as if it could be related to peri menopause?
Thanks for any input.
