Hi Ladies, I am 50, have had regular periods with some heaviness the first couple days then it would taper off and last 7 days tops. until this month, same as usual but I am going on week 2 with medium spotting, is this yet another great symptom of peri? I had a pap in Oct which came out fine except he did feel small fibroids, he did not say how many..Also I would have a hotflash here and there but this month they are kicking my butt..Oh Tis the season of our lives!
Sounds like what I had several years ago. I went through menopause early. I was done with my periods by age 47.
When I was about 46 more or less (can't remember), I went to the doctor because I was bleeding all the time.............i would have a period for a week, stop for a few days, then start up again.
He did a endometrial biopsy in his office on me and found I had a thick uterine lining, so he suggested Progesterone Therapy by shot, they have pills for this but he said they don't work as well. I had to do this for a few months, then he did another biopsy in his office and the results came back good. It did stop my periods that was the good part.
Thanx Daisy, I Hope I dont have to go thru all that but I guess we never know, Its hard enough believing that Im ALREADY 50 and starting this not so fun part of life..
Your very welcome!
I am glad I am through it. I will be 65 soon, and I don't look forward to that. The only good thing is about my age is, I say/do what I want, hahaha, the kids don't like it but that is tough. I have two children and nine grandchildren, and they are ALL the joy of my life. I have been married for 46 years to the same wonderful man , and went with him for four years before we got married. Well I wrote another book, so I will stop now.
