The never-ending period!!

I haven't posted for a long time. I've just sort of been muddling thru all this peri crap. Dealing with it as it comes. Until now. Something new. Quick background. I'm 47 and been in peri for about 4 yrs. I think. (It seems like forever so I'm not really sure!) Anyway, I hadn't had a period since last September. I was truly hoping this was it, that I was DONE!! Then came May. I started with just a little spotting here and there. Then I had a week of a full-blown period -- nothing too heavy but a period and very disappointing because there went my 8 mos. streak! Then I continued to have spotting the rest of that month. And I was terribly bloated and my boobs were so sore and sensitive I could barely touch them to wash in the shower! This continued into this month (June) and June 4th I started another full-blown period --heavier than May's -- and every time I think it's just about over it starts back up again. And still with the bloating, ridiculously sore boobs, etc. So what the hell? Is this typical? Anyone else out there experiencing this? Do I have to make up for my 8 mos. of nothing with a constant period? Is it ever going to end? I realize no one may have any answers for me but I just really needed to vent. I am soooo frustrated with all this! As I'm sure many of you can understand! Thanks for taking the time to read my long post! Diane

Re: The never-ending period!!

It's probably just part of the roller-coaster ride that is menopause, but bloating can be a symptom of other serious problems, so I'd suggest you talk to your doctor and get it checked out. I'm 53 and still experiencing HEAVY periods....wish it would end soon! Good luck.

Re: The never-ending period!!

I could have written your post - ugh!

I have bloating and spotting too. Not sure what to think. Bloat is normal from what I understand. "bouts of bloat" I think is what I read. Spotting is bugging me. I don't get that and I have read a few different things about that from normal to polyps, etc. If anyone else with experience has had this - please reply!
