the bleeding can last all month or 10 days I just dont know how long they will last. I thought my periods would get sporadic at this age. in the last week I have noticed a disturbing "fishy" smell. I am bleeding now and have been for about 7 days. It just doesnt let up?
Hello, First of all it can be due to metrorrhagia which causes uterine bleeding at irregular intervals, particularly between the expected menstrual periods. Metrorrhagia can occur due to dysfunction uterine bleeding, hormonal imbalance, polyps, fibroids, endometriosis, infections of the cervix, vagina or endometrium, pelvic inflammatory disease, ovarian insufficiency, ovarian cysts or benign lesions of the female reproductive system.
I have occasionally had irregular periods for the past year. I would sometimes skip a month, then have two the next month. This happened a few times. But now I completely skipped my period for two months, and have now been bleeding off and on for almost two weeks. Is this possibly perimenopause?

Due to my history of blood clotting and always having heavy periods, I'm not able to take any hormone treatments is this part of entering menopause and is there an end to this someday as I'm always worried about being in front of people or at a meeting and having accidents even though I am heavily padded.
Since you are 50 years old, the problems with periods (irregularity, heavy flow etc) can be due to menopause. Often there is hormonal imbalance and there is no problem with the uterus (such as fibroids, thickening of linin, endometriosis etc). You need to get a complete hormone panel including estrogen, progesterone, FSH, LH and prolactin. If the results point towards an imbalance then hormone replacement therapy often helps improve the cycle. Please consult your gynecologist regarding this.
Hello, The normal age range for the occurrence of menopause is somewhere between the age of 45 and 55. During menopause, the production of most of the reproductive hormones, including the estrogens, progesterone and testosterone, diminishes and becomes more irregular, often with wide and unpredictable fluctuations in levels,resulting in various symptoms.
As long as the bleeding is getting less and less, you are OK. If you start bleeding too often, to heavily, or for prolonged periods of time, it is time to call your doctor. If the symptoms are really intense and interfering with your lifestyle, there are some hormone prescriptions that can alleviate them. Most people are trending away from the hormones unless the symptoms are really miserable.
I am 48 and am pretty sure I am going thru menopause I have been having a period for over a week now and am bleeding really heavy and lost a lot of blood and I am real weak and kinda scared if I go to the er is there anything they can do or should I even go
Question about menopause. A few months back i have had irregular periods, but the end of april it was very bad. (bleeding, cramping,etc). Now I haven't had one since then. Also, hot flashes - heat comes on quick then I feel chilled. Doesn't last long at all. At night, I have to sleep with the fan on and ac. and have mood swings. My mother went thru this in her early 30's, I will be 31 in sept.
Hi Dr. Downing, I thought I was through with menopause as my last period was about 18 months ago, age now 53,,,2 weeks ago,,,I had a steroid shot for a rash and about 5 days later I started my period. Lasted about 4 days as it normally was and now its over. Does this mean,,,I am going to start having periods again or do you think the shot could have started this. Thank you!
You should be finished with menopause when your periods have stopped for one year. There could be another cause for the bleeding, so go to your Gynecologist and get checked. Heavy colds and coughs do not cause uterine bleeding as far as I know.
But before you get alarmed, my second GUESS is that, at age 47, you are in perimenopause which is the begining stage leading to menopause. Irregular periods, unusual amounts of bleeding from mere drops to Niagra Falls levels, these are all pretty normal symptoms that your body is getting out of the baby business and does NOT mean something is "wrong" with you. A simple blood test by your OB/GYN can tell if you are, indeed, heading into menopause.
They waited another 6 months and did a hysterectomy on her because she was bleeding way too much. My friends mom went through the messed up periods for about a year (the same thing you are describing) and then they went away,never to return. You didn't mention if you were already fully into meno or not before the bleeding started up,or whether you just started getting messed up periods.
It hits some worse than others. I had periods that came and went as they wanted! And I had periods that lasted 2 weeks with heavy bleeding too. So long as you have had an obs/gyn check-out and there is nothing physically wrong inside, then it's all caused by hormones. Get that check-out if you haven't already had one. (I had 3) All I can say is you have to ride it out till it's done. Things WILL settle down in time.

If you are still bleeding fairly constantly then you are not in menopause...to be in menopause, it is measured by not having a period for a year. If you are still ovulating, then the FSH test should be taken on the 3rd day of your period to give you a true reading....it is possible that this level is flucuating.
an oncologist told me that the tamoxen may have put me into an early menopause, although i had quit bleeding 6 months before the taxmoxefen. the lumpectomy was benign, but since i had a history of fibrocystic breasts and a breast lump so close to the rib, they put me on the tamoxefen. i would rather have periods than 25 months of hot flashes! happy new year!
I have read that sometimes the vaginal wall can become so dry after menopause, it may be irritated and could cause some spotting or light bleeding. I would try some lubricant but definitely see a dr. as well. It could be a more serious problem. Best of luck!
Since I had read online that NO bleeding after menopause is normal, I called and got an appointment the next day. He ordered a pelvic ultrasound and then an endometrial biopsy. I had the ultrasound yesterday and the biopsy today. The ultrasound showed up ok with some increase in the lining. I have read in alternative medical literature that bleeding after menopause is ok, especially if you're on hormones...but of course you have to get it checked.
From 12 when I first got my period to 33 I had perfect periods. No cramps. No excessive bleeding. Then one period my life changed. For the next 20 years I had life-altering cramps and hemorrage type bleeding. Anaprox alleviated the cramps and I lived on it. I had many D&C and was told I had fibroids and I should have an hysterectomy. I refused. I have only been pregnant once and that end with an abortion in 1973 when I was 23.
i am/went through the same things you are i missed my period for 70 days then returned every 28-30 days for 2 months then a week later just brown discharge. had (hormone)FSH and LH bloodwork normal but within post menopausal stage. i am 46 and 10 days ago i developed night sweats. so i shower before bedtime but after i dry off i dress in my pjs and now i get hot flashes...tomorrow i am going to my gyn for an unplanned apt.
