Peri-M ~ Cramps, Cramps and more cramps

Hello Friends!

I'm 50 years old and peri-m. I have skipped a few periods this year and have some night sweats, mood swings, anxiety, etc. I'm not on any meds for peri-m symptoms or any HRT.

This month, I was suppose to start about a week ago. I have cramped so bad, on-going cramps everyday that started about 2 weeks ago. I keep thinking, oh OK, guess I'm gonna start, but I never have, but keep cramping like crazy.

Anyone else have these terrible on-going cramps without a period??

Thanks!

Hi cindylou2,

Yes, the same thing happens to alot of us. They are called phantom periods. You have all the symptoms but never the bleeding. I have missed my period again this month but had all the symptoms for weeks, especially the bloating. Wish I would start just to get rid of the bloat.

Hang in there, you're not alone and I think it's completely normal.

Missy

Ohhh THANK YOU Missy! I was thinking, what the heck is wrong here? but "phantom peroids" makes perfect sense to me now. I will be so glad when all this is over with, I'm getting too old for this, LOL! Thank you again!!!

Re: Peri-M ~ Cramps, Cramps and more cramps

Do you ladies get the cramps in the middle of the month during ovulation time? I seem to have had bad achiness for the past couple of days. Day 14 and 15 of the cycsle. Ugh! This is nuts! But I am having body aches in other area's. Its not the flu! Its like maybe I am low on vitamin D too or something. Achy sore muscles, sometimes some burning skin feeling or in the muscles. I have had this 2 times before when my vitamin D got really low. I keep forgetting to keep up with that when we get to winter time. I just hope I don't have cysts. Anyone else have cramps in odd times of the month??

Hi Tedd,

Yes, I always have pain when I ovulate. It's usually a different type of pain though, not like cramps of a period. It feels more like pain on the sides, perhaps my ovaries. Sometimes it feels like I am passing a watermelon instead of an egg!!!!

Take care,
Missy

Yes! Thats what I have too! This time it lasted for 3 days. Not the usual few hours to a day. I really think I am low on vitamin D which can make it worse. So I got back on some high doses for the past 3 days.
