Please help! Spotting for 2 weeks.
 
Hi,
I just turned 46 and last December I missed my period but I had my period on January 30th this year. However that was the last time I had a period. Two weeks ago I saw some pinkish discharge and thought that my period will start any moment now, but it's been 2 weeks and no period, only a very light bloody discharge only when I go to the bathroom.

I called my OBGYN for an appointment and the earliest date is May 31st.

I got very concerned today after reading about uterine cancer and googling. Is this a normal peri menopausal symptom?

I had my hormones checked by my primary and she told me that I am getting close to menopause.

I would really appreciate if anyone can shed a light to my situation!

Many thanks,
Liverette

Sounds normal for peri. Periods come and go until they don't come any more. Even when I was on birth control, I skipped a couple and also had a couple that were barely worthy of being called a period.

Titchou,
Thank you for replying to my post. My concern is the 2 weeks of spotting and still going... Hope it stops!

Thanks again,
Liverette

Could be cysts. That's very common. I wouldn't worry unless you start to bleed uncontrollably. Spotting isn't that big a deal - full fledged bleeding for weeks on end is.
