    Menopausal heavy bleeding

    I'm 66 yrs old & avoid doctors unless absolutely necessary. I started bleeding in 2016 and thought it was due to stress because it was about the time my husband died. It lasted for a few weeks, stopped & started again a few times for shorter duration & stopped for months until starting again 3 months ago. Only happens randomly & is just a one time thing, not hrs or days. I started having pain (cramping) in my lower right side & sometimes to my back. I've had constipation....

    Anyone willing to talk about vaginal dryness symptoms?

    I have posted in 2 other forums about this, but not getting any responses. :( Maybe nobody wants to talk about it, but I really would appreciate if someone could share with me what exactly they are experiencing and if that is what I am dealing with. I am 42 and in November I started burning down there. Got tested for everything and treated for BV. The burning remained, along with redness. Got tested for everything 2 more times. Everything was negative. My PCM thinks maybe perimenopause and started....

    I had a tubal ligation done in 2006. I never resumed having periods after that and was not going thru menopause my OBGYN Dr said. O had been on birth control for 20 yrs before the surgery. I was 45 at the time. The Dr. gave some some pills to take to make me start having periods again but they did not work so nothing else was done. Then about every 2 yrs since then I get cramps and have some light bleeding for a couple of days then it stops. When I had my tubes done the Dr told me I have endometriosis....

    Accessory Ovary

    I had a TVU done and I went back to my gynecologist for a follow up and I was told that I have an accessory ovary. What exactly does that mean? I tried to google it but nothing really showed up. Does this mean I have PCOS? My dr. didn’t really say if I did or not. I read another similar post to this and one woman said she was in menopause. I’m only 22 but I know pre-menopause is a thing. Could that be possible? I’m very worried and I have never heard of this before. Will this cause complications....

    Period for 6 weeks and counting...

    I am 44. I have had two children and I had a tubal ligation 11 years ago. My periods are always on time and last 3-4 days. In December my period was two weeks late. Once it finally started It seemed normal until it didn’t stop! It would slow down to spotting and then all of a sudden it would gush! Bright red, huge globs of blood clots and smells different than normal. I went to my doctor who put in for a referral to a gyno but they can’t see me for several more weeks and by then I will have been....

    Haven't had a period in 3 years.

    I have not had my period in 3 years. I have been trying to get pregnant. I am 23 and I had previously went to a gynecologist who said I didn't have any problems. I'm distraught. I don't know how to go about this and I fear I might have premature menopause. End point, I haven't had a period in 3 years, or what could be considered a period. Every time I have sex it's a bit painful afterwards and I bleed. I don't know what to do. I was also diagnosed with IIH and I was advised....

    Full blown menopause diagnosis, no "warning"

    I have had varying symptoms including weight loss, nausea, problems sleeping for about a year. Dr put me on Ambien which works very well. Recently I've lost appetite and weight, increased nausea s Dr started doing some tests (cancer runs in my family). Then it hit, a panic attack (I think) and some generalized anxiety (not bad) so I started beta blockers which also help and am seeing a counselor. Dr did some more blood work and turns out I am in "full blown" menopause. She wants me....

    i'm 55 and havent had a period for 18 years

    I'm 55 and havent had a period for 18 years since i was 37, i suddenly started bleeding heavily 3 weeks ago and it hasnt stopped. I'm very concerned as i had to have a biopsy last year, and was told 3 years ago that i have HPV 16. It has gotten better, last year it's down to "normal HPV" and not the cancer causing one. Is heavy bleeding normal when going into menopause? I'm concerned because it hasnt let up since it started about Dec. 31st. I plan to see my doctor as soon....
