It's been about 5 months since I posted and decided it was time to check in again. I seriously am not enjoying being a female.
I am 3 months shy of being 56 and still getting my periods. I have people telling me this is just not normal and I better get myself checked out soon. Well my yearly is due in December and I plan on doing just that.
Back in March I had a blood test done because I had skipped a couple periods. It was determined I was menopausel. Nice. Had some mild hot flashes, nothing severe though, just feeling warm. So then the periods come back every month and here we are. I've been regular again for a good 4 months or so. But I really feel I am too old for this crap. And it is now embarrasing to be buying feminine products at my age! I remember being young and being embarrassed. lol
So from what I have googled on this topic is it's not totally abnormal to be my age and still having period. But how could a blood test back earlier this year show I am menopausel then? I have a feeling I am going to be 70 and still bleeding. I am just so confused. Anyone have a story similiar to mine? sigh!
