Very irregular periods....11 months in between...help!!
I'm 48 years old...and haven't had a period in about 11 months....until yesterday! I was so surprised when the bleeding began...at first I thought that it might just be a bit of spotting, but nope...today...full blown everything....bleeding, terrible cramps, headachey, backache...etc.
I've been told that I have fibroids...but would they cause me to stop having periods for almost a year?? I thought that I might be on my way to beginning menopause, even though I'm two years younger than my mother was when she went through it.
My question is....does anyone think that this could be dangerous...or perhaps i'm just perimenopausal? The cramps are really bad...the bleeding's a normal amount for a period...but it's just so weird that I haven't had one for so long....and here it is...
On the one hand I feel like this is a sign that my body is healthy and back to functioning normally....but why wasn't it doing so for the previous 11 months?
Thanks in advance for anyone's input...
I'm just scratching my head here...because this feels so weird! lol
I guess I should get in to see the gyn, huh? What sorts of tests do you think might be ordered for this symptom?
Dream up the world you want to live in...dream out loud!!!
