    Period (I think) after 8 months without

    I am posting to find out if anyone else has experienced this. My last "real" period was in May 2019. Between that time and now, I've had an occasional spotting but nothing significant. I've also had some phantom periods where I thought for sure it was starting and nothing.

    About two weeks ago, I noticed that my breasts were tender which has happened since May. I found that odd but didn't think anything more about it. Then, I started to feel some mild cramping and a week later....I woke up bleeding. The odd thing is, though, that I woke up bleeding. Then, throughout the day barely anything. The next morning, woke up bleeding again and then throughout the day, hardly anything. This has been going on for a week now. It's like sporadically bleeding and cramps. It's annoying because I can't go without anything because I never know when that sporadic bleeding will occur.

    I guess I can consider this a period, right? Thinking back, too, I can distinctly remember feeling ovulation pain, too, so it must have been a regular period just no where near as heavy as I used to experience.

    So, I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this type of "period" before. The on/off bleeding with cramps.

    I guess my counting begins again, too.

    Ive had something fairly similar. Haven't had a real period for a long long time, it was getting close to a year that I even had a small light one, I still got the migraines I always got but worse and no period. Then last month I had a light discharge, not bloody, more of an ovulation discharge. After that the sore breasts started (which I also have not had for a LONG time) and a couple weeks later a small amount of blood. Nothing significant, just a small amount and then nothing the rest of the day, next day a smaller amount and nothing the rest of the day. I think it happened maybe 3 days and then stopped. So almost a year and now I'm back to the beginning, UGH!

    Depending on your age and whether or not you are so inclined, HRT could bring that to a halt. At 57 I was still having periods on birth control. I went on HRT and never had another bleed of any kind.
