    I am 46 yrs old, have had normal periods up until last yr. I started working out, consistently, weights etc. and skipped 2 months. Then it started again, no major issues. This time around, its been 3 months, no period (am not pregnant) but irritability and mood swings abound. No night sweats although sleep is not great. No hot flashes but difficulty in loosing weight. Could this be start of menopause?

    Prolapsed fibroid

    I have had a prolapsed uterine fibroid for a few years and occasionally it bleeds a little, but mainly if I take any aspirin or tylenol for a headache. I am 61. My doctor says it is nothing to worry about, but it is bothersome. What should I do.?

    Transvaginal Scan Revealed Thick Womb-Lining / emergency appointment? Should I be worried?

    Hi All, I'll start by saying that i've recently become Post-Menopausal & my last bleed was earlier this year (June 2018) & that I am now 55 years old & have 2 children. I'm hoping you can help. I've had a gnawing & dragging pain in my lower left abdomen for literally years (10 years?)

    Horrible neck and headaches

    Hello. I’m 48 and it’s been over 6 weeks since my last period, not pregnant. I started getting shoulder and neck and headaches about 3 years ago one week prior to getting my periods. For a month now I’ve had horrible headaches and neck stiffness. Never been on the pill no kids. Anyone else ? Any natural relief in sight? Started using black cohosh, evening primrose and progestin cream 2 days ago. Thanks

    Vicarious Menstruation (nose bleeds) starting later in life.

    Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone else is dealing with vicarious menstruation? I've seen two different definitions for vicarious menstruation, one where there is endometrium tissue growing in another random part of the body and that body part will bleed during menstruation, the other definition being where the nose (i think eye is also common but most articles reference the nose) will bleed due to the surge in estrogen. All the information I've read on the subject talks about this starting....

    Bleeding after TV pelvic ultrasound

    Hi. I am 48. My gynae prescribed a transvaginal (TV) ultrasound to check whether any cysts or fibroids etc. could be causing irregular periods. Or, am I just menopausal? I wasn't pregnant. I never had sex. The procedure left me sore inside because initially, the ultrasound assistant wasn't even using any gel on the lube before inserting it in me. Later, she had applied gel on it. Now I have light bleeding. Should I be concerned? Or, will my body heal from inside on its own?

I have been really stressed lately but idk if that plays a role or not. I have no other symptoms besides acne and more stress. I am also very tired from a lack of sleep... What can this all mean?

    Hormones or heart problems

    I'm 47 and having all the pre-menopause symptoms such as wonky periods, hot flashes (generally only at night), etc. But lately, I've been experiencing lightheadedness where I think I'm going to pass out and nausea. I also have days where I have fatigue so bad, I'll sleep 15-18 hours. My GP has run ALL the blood tests (thyroid, liver, kidneys, vitamin levels - all the panels and the tests all come back normal. My blood pressure has also been low but is normal during these episodes....

    Thickened uterine lining, cause for concern?

    I'm 71 and went through menopause when I was about 50. I do not have any history of bleeding. I have lower body swelling - belly, hips, thighs, buttocks - for which MDs can find no reason. It came on suddenly and immediately with a severe allergic reaction to a topical ointment ~ 2 years ago. The swelling never went away. I am quite overweight but otherwise healthy and take no meds. I've had vaginal ultrasounds as part of the MD's attempt to find the cause of the swelling. Two years ago....
