Common Questions and Answers about Menopause periods lasting longer

period

I did see a slight change with them <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lasting</span> a little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>er than normal. Last month I had a very light period. Now this month I have not had one. I have been regular all my life. Never late and always on time. I have never used birth control pills or patches or any of that stuff. My question is.... Do you think I have stopped? My mom's lasted till age 53 years old. I do have 3 children. Thanks.....
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.
have had relatively normal periods, except the past few months.... coming earlier.. some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lasting</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>er, clots. The past few months have been longer, and this month I had 2 in one month. My mom was 52 when she had menopause. I do feel hot flashes, I think sometimes. My dr. thought a while ago, bc pills would regulate. I chickened out... not ready for a hysterectomy-- unless I have to. Freaked out this month with only about 4 days w/ out bleeding. Went to dr.
I finally went to my OB in the beginning of November who did some tests on me and said that I was experiencing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>menopause</span>. I'm 25 and my son is only 1 1/2. No freakin way! He put me on Hormones (which by the way can cause every cancer in the book) and said that I will feel better within a day, but did not want to take Mirena out. I said ok and went on my way. I talked to many people for advice who told me to get it taken out right away and go off of the hormones.
I had been pretty regular up until the last year or so, and then I would have slightly shorter and sometimes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>er <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span>. I am 37 and been having abnormal paps, so I thought it was that, and since I have my paps as ordered I thought everything was ok. However, I had never had one as long as I did the last one. It lasted 3 weeks. It was bright red and wouldn't let go, but has seemed to stopped right now.
The boyfriend, I had before my current one lasted for several months. and my first signs of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>er <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> between periods didn't start until about April or May. Around April or May I dated a guy for two to three weeks. Ended it and then met up with a new boyfriend. Suddenly, I found myself waiting nine weeks in between a period. I have been thinking this is really long. I really started thinking I was pregnant.
it took exactly 1 year and 3 months 4 my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> to return i am now havin very heavy painful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> every other week and this is ruinin my life. i have no sex life and am desperate 4 a baby.
My GP has been NO HELP! She seems obsessed with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>menopause</span>. I'm 51 and having erratic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> which are someties very heavy. I'm vegetarian and anaemic - although this is improving as I'm trying to eat lots of spinach and dark green veg. I've just strted taking iron tablets. Today has been a bad day as I've had the tingling in my head and have been very emotional. Think I'm just fed up with feeling "not right"!
I am 36 years old and have had 3 children,For the first time this month I had 2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> in 15 days. The first heavy and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lasting</span> for about 7 days. Then I started again 3 days later it has been light. I always have cramping the Dr. said that can be due to prolaps cervix. I am suprised to see how many of your are experiencing the same thing. At first i was thinking it could be caused from the excess stress I have had lately, but sounds like there are several reasons why it happening.
Before surgery, I had to wear tampon and pad, now I just wear a light pad or if I wear tampon, it last for a long time! There are 2 negatives (I think from surgery) 1. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> are light, but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>er - last around 10 days. 2. i know when I'm ovulating and it makes me very tired and sick feeling. that last for about a day. But for me, I'm still glad I had procedure done. I can go swimming anytime of the month! and now I have my own house cleaning business, that I could of never done before!
I have been told by Endo I am Anemic but I hear lots of women with Hashimotos are. So I haven't worried. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> were regular usually every 26-28 days. lasting 3 days off one and back on for 1. Take thyroid and have been having to take Met since I delivered because the gestational never went away. I know alot of women w/ my thyroid problem have PCOS and take met. Not sure I have that though.
It would go away and I wouldn't notice it for several months. About a month ago, I began noticing it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lasting</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>er and getting a lot of pressure like I had before with my fibroids. I also felt bladdar pressure and a lot of bloating... and eventually ended up with a UTI infection three weeks ago....white cells and blood in my urine. After two rounds of antibiotics, that has seemed to clear up. However, now I am left with this constant cramping and feeling of pressure.
I used to have a small waist • My periods have shortened from being heavy and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lasting</span> 6-7 days to being irregular and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lasting</span> 2 days. • Hair loss • I cannot sleep through the night any longer. I sleep about 3 hours and wake up, and it is light, un-refreshing sleep. I hardly ever dream any more. • Short-term memory lapses. Forgetting meetings at work and losing things.
Now my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lasting</span> 6 days, and I have great pains in my ovaries. I also (sounds gross) have a slimy discharge after going to the bathroom now. Years ago I had non-stop issues with alot of cyst forming on my ovaries where I had similar pain. I have never been able to have children and gave up hope of it 5 years ago. Just wondering if anyone can relate or explain some of this to me.
I'm 43 years old and have had pretty 'normal' <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span>. By that I mean I'd get them every month, though not on the same day (within 3 days, I'd say). For the past few years, they have been heavy one month, light the next and always lasting for 4 to 5 days tops. This time, I was a month and a half late. Very unusual. At home pregnancy test read negative. About a week before I started, I noticed a really foul odor and I mean really foul.
A. As <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>menopause</span> approaches, it is common for periods to get closer together and have clots. The best thing is to ask your doctor to do a blood test for FSH. That is a hormone test that causes eggs to develop. As the number of eggs gets fewer, the FSH level increases and in the process, gives doctors a marker for menopause.
I'm 47, I still have regular <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lasting</span> about 5 or 6 days. But usually, almost like clockwork a couple of days before I start my period I have horrible nightsweats. I wake up completely soaked from head to toe. I talked to my doctor and she said to drink soy milk everyday. Has anyone else experienced this? When will my PMS and periods stop? How much longer should I expect to have to deal with this? If it were just PMS or menopause symptoms I had to deal with it wouldn't be so bad, but BOTH?
i don't think it is ms related, i am 49 but have gone through menopause,before i did i was very regular and then they started getting closer and closer and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lasting</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>er, then they quit, most often they get further apart but mt dr said they can go both ways

I had a very similar experience prior to my hysterectomy. I had been having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lasting</span> 3+ weeks, very heavy and painful, a week or two off and then it would return. Also, they had been irregular all my life. They eventually found I had fibroids, ovarian cysts and endometriosis. Since you don't mention painful periods, just prolonged bleeding, you may have other things goings on.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span>! EEKK I am hoping <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>menopause</span> will come early! Since my tubal they are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> from hell About 4 days long but I have to wear two pads at a time and run to the bathroom especially overnight when you first get up!...
BUT ARE THE BROWN <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> A SIGN THAT I AM NOW REACHING <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>menopause</span> and I DON'T HAVE long LEFT? OR IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH ME INSIDE? DO I HAVE AN INFECTION? AM I INFERTILE? I JUST FEEL THAT BECAUSE MY periods ARE NOT BRIGHT RED IN COLOUR THAT MY WOMB'S LINING IS NOT GOOD and SO A THIRD PREGNANCY IS GOING TO BE IMPOSSIBLE? YET EVERYTHING ELSE SEEMS QUITE NORMAL. PLEASE HELP?
When I have had a late period or when everything exits my body a little later than normal. But this time it feels like it's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lasting</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>er. I have not been able to smell anything from it (though I haven't directly smelled it). I'm not having pain in my pelvic area, or any burning or itching. I read online that it could be ovulation and it will last a few days. I would say it's been going on at least 4-5 days. Anyone know what this might be and if there's anything I can about it?
The fact that you're under a year with no periods is still peri-menopausal stages so, the fact that you've gotten another period means very little as long as the period is within normal realms (although, after 7 months, it could be much heavier and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>er <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lasting</span> so, stay calm about that). Given your family history though, it's best to keep an eye on things and if something doesn't sit right with you, question it until you get answers that make you feel comfortable with it all.
Help!!! For the past 6 months or so my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span> have become <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>er and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>er and after having sex I have bled for days. This has been happening since August and has gotten progressively worse and the bleeding is lasting longer and longer. I also have cramping associated with my cycle and a sharp pain also in my lower right pelvic region. My last cycle began approximately the 23rd of November and has not stopped since that time. I pretty much am bleeding everyday.
Are these from synthroid levels too low or could it be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>menopause</span>? I had an ablation done almost 3 years ago so I no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>er get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>periods</span>. How do you know the difference. and how do you keep your synthroid levels steady. I take it same time everyday without food for years why the fluctuation?
I have gone for probably about a year with no periods, although I really haven't been keeping good track, it could be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>er than that. I'm 49 years old, and started going through <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>menopause</span> pretty early. Last week, I had what seemed like a normal period, lasting about 5 days, and pretty heavy. Looking it up online, I realized I should get in to have this checked, and did that today. I had a pap that came back normal 3 months ago.
full on period <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lasting</span> a week...except it is not a true period. So me takes me old tired konked out bod to the doc. Joy of joys! It is a FEMALE on duty this weekend! Woohoo! She understands....she pokes prods ponders and says.."Ok....we got perhaps, Lupus, recurrence of thyroid gland, menopause or perhaps something else more sinister" Now I try hard NOT to be excited. Recall, if you will, that in the past, many a specialist has been just like this local G.
