Confused about symptoms!
My gyn feels that I am in perimenopause and I know that I am getting deeper into it; more symptoms, etc. But, I'm wondering if all of them are menopause and thought I'd get a few responses from some of you! I do know that I have about a 3cm uterine fibroid, so that possibly could cause some of this, too. I just don't know!!
I typically have a 3-4 day period. Not heavy, usually, then it stops. A few days to a week later, it starts again with brownish, older looking blood. That last 2-3 days then stops. Last month, it did this, then two weeks later, I started again; lasted about 3 days. Then, about a week later, I started again, but it was more of a red/pink slimy discharge. Not really enough for a pad, but enough that it would stain underwear without one. That has kind of tapered off now, but I woke up this morning with cramps, headache and an ache way down low in my back; more in my tailbone, I guess. All signs of PMS, but only a spot of rather clear discharge.
Do any of you have this situation? Not sure if it's typical at my age(almost 51), or what to think!!
