    Bleeding 14 days after period on cyclical HRT and lining 15mm mid cycle

    I am on cyclical HRT and had my period and then this month got it again as I started the Progesterone on day 14. I did have a change in my thyroid meds from snythroid to armour thyroid and not sure if that has anything to do with it.. Also while changing thyroid meds I had a heavy period which I usually don't have. It is usually normal. Now I had a period and 14 days later another period. Went for an ultrasound today and the tech said my lining was 15. .I will get the report tomorrow. .Seen my....

    Premenopausal? Husband needs advice.

    My wife is 43, for several years now she had a ‘spell of irritability and combativeness’ almost every 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 months. For 4 to around 8 days she is almost impossible to interact with, and I’m the bad guy for everything, and because I have encouraged her to have her hormones tested- I’m treated like I’m trying to have her ‘sent off’. I have had zero luck at getting her to see a medical professional about her mood swings. She does want to admit it. Her family does not want to see it, I’m being....

    Changing doctors and...

    I wasn't sure where to put this but: I'm in the process of changing doctors. I have most of my records going back to 2015. I'm 58 and this would be a primary care doctor. Do I really need to take ALL of this to the new doctor's office (or fax it? I have a 5 lb envelope from one hospital ALONE for a cardiac stress test and an upper GI!) Would they want every lab test I've ever had, or would the last 3 years suffice? What about office notes from visits? My last doctor was very judgmental....

    Late symptoms??

    My last period was April 2012. I still have some hot flashes and brain fog, etc. But a few weeks ago I began to itch all over my upper body. Head, neck, shoulders, breasts, tummy. No rash, just this infernal itch that went on all day and woke me up at night. Went to the Dr., who ordered bloodwork for thyroid, liver, sugar, etc. All came back normal. So my question is...can meno symptoms appear more than 7 years after your last period? Or do symptoms have to appear immediately or soon after meno strikes....

    Do I still need these EVERY year?

    AT my last GYN visit, my doctor said since I had never had an "abnormal" Pap smear, was post-menopausal, monogamous for 20+ years and human papilloma virus negative, I only needed a Pap smear every 3 years. I was thinking I NEVER need another one. Same with a mammogram; have never had an abnormality BUT have very dense breast tissue and the GYN DID suggest the next time I have one, to do it via MRI instead. My insurance won't cover this; when I get to a certain age I'm positive....
