    Fluid in cervical canal, leave alone?

    I am 55, had a pelvic mri that revealed a 2×1 cm of fluid in my endocervical canal. No other findings and my only symptom was stomach bloating. Can this fluid go away on its own? Also, could that small amount of fluid cause stomach bloating. Im thinking the bloating might be from stress.

    Menopause fatigue even on HRT?

    I have some chronic fatigue issues, and I am 1.5 mg of estrodial. My periods are beginning to go away finally at 53, but I am feeling more fatigued in a unique way. Does anyone who takes HRT, still feel menopause fatigue? Thanks!

    Having a late menopause age 59. Dr Minkin was so kind in helping me a few years ago when I was concerned about late menopause so any advice would be so appreciated now. Two very scanty periods this year, really just yellow brown spotting, and several PMS episodes. Seen Gynaecologist as I was worried about bleeding and wanted to ensure it was normal. TV scan showed possible small Polyp 1 cm by 1/2 cm. Lining was 6mm on internal scan (5mm on pelvic scan ) Ovaries small. I had a Polypectomy and Hysteroscopy....
  • 55, Desperately need hormones, can't afford! No one covers, can't use PP because disabled and on Medicare.

    Hi I am 55 in menopause. Have horrible hot flashes, haven't slept well in about 8 months, oh, and I'm suicidally depressed. Chances are good my life could be saved by hormones. But I am on fixed income and no one covers hormones for aging women! They cover hormones if you need a gender change, they even cover little blue pills for men! I am here to beg the pharmaceutical companies, research people and whoever else is involved with making the decisions to not cover hormones for aging women....
  • REALLY heavy period after stopping birth control (after initial withdrawal bleed)

    All my life I’ve had light periods (one regular sized tampon could last me most of the day and I’d only really bleed the first three days, then mostly spot the next two). Now I am almost 32 and I’ve had two kids (was either on birth control or pregnant for like 4.5 years) and I just stopped taking the mini pill (progestin only) two months ago. Last month I had a withdrawal bleed, which was light, maybe even a little lighter than a normal period. But yesterday my period started again and it’s been....

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....
