Re: I need someone who understands

Hi Jennyd, Nothing to worry about hun. In fact, you're very lucky to not have spotting sooner. Our hormones fluctuate greatly during peri AND post-menopause. That being said, if you're still worried, a gyno check up will help ease your concerns. Thank you for sharing, ~lKaz

Re: I need someone who understands

Hi Jenny,

Many women experience spotting post menopausal. Alot of women here on the board thought they were done with their periods only to have it come back and bite them on the butt. Don't freak out. If you decide to go see your gyno, usually the first thing they will do is an ultrasound, painless and non invasive. It will give you peace of mind.

Hope this helps,
Missy

I was told by my doctor if you have any spotting at all even a little it is still considered a period until you have nothing for one full year

Re: I need someone who understands

Thanks for the replys.
Menopause has really hit me hard. Just when I adjust something new comes ago. This one caught me by surprise, because it has been over a year. My Dr. put me on Provera for 10 days back in August, to clean out anything left , is how he put it. It caused No bleeding, so I really thought I was DONE.

Re: Spotting after 14 months with no period

My gyno told me that As long as you have your ovaries, you can have bleeding. I had it happen one time and I haven't had a "real" period in 7 years. When that happened it had been about 3 or 4 years.

Re: Spotting after 14 months with no period

It's happening to me right now also. I haven't had a period in about 2 years and yesterday I started spotting.Now it's turned into a full blown period,although not as heavy as my periods used to be. I was totally surprised and caught off guard. But after reading some of the posts on here I see that it's not uncommon.
