Three days later she had to go to the ER for severe pain in her right hip - while at the ER she mentioned the vaginal bleeding to the nurse and attending physician - they examined her and told her that her uterus seemed rather thick (unfortunately, I wasn't with her, so I don't know "how" thick.) The physician made her an appointment with an OB/GYN three days from now. I am very, very worried, as everything I have looked up on the internet suggests a high probability of cancer.
I had this biopsy about 3 years ago for heavy bleeding and it was normal. It hurt then and I spotted some but nothing like this time with the 3 biopsy. It was extremely painful.

I am also having sorness and pelvic pain. Is this normal.

Hello, There are many ways to manage irregular bleeding in a woman nearing menopause. In this setting is important your thyroid is checked and determined to be normal.

I am 49 and possibly menopausal. I have missed periods for 4 months and then had a heavy w/ clots, followed by a month with little flow. Then 4 months without. The Dr. said my uterine lining was thick. Didn't tell me how thick...I had an ultrasound which confirmed the thick lining but no fibroids. The dr. put me on progesterone to try to release the lining but nothing happened. He gave me an additional 7 day dose of progesterone and still nothing happened.
She wonders why my periods stopped. She said that my thyroid levels may be up and I might need an adjusted medication level. My last thyroid levels taken 2 weeks ago were TSH 1.98, Free T3 2.65, Free T4 1.13. My last levels that were taken in July 2011 were TSH 1.18, Free T4 1.6, no Free T3 was taken. My question is how likely is this cancer and could my thyroid levels keep me from having periods?
Other causes could be polycystic ovarian syndrome, diseases of pituitary gland, hormonal imbalance of estrogen and progesterone and uterine abnormalities like fibroid and cervical dysplasia. Your doctor may consider tests like pregnancy tests, blood sugar levels, thyroid function test, prolactin, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSA), estrogen, and testosterone.

I had my period December 13, then on December 28 I started light bleeding for 5 days then turned into full blown bleeding. I have been bleeding for 21 days.

It did seem to increase the bleeding both pre and post procedure as well as the cramping and added diaheria and nausea on top of it. It did lessen the time having to be spent doing the procedure somewhat. So, it seems that it's mixed blessings and I'm not sure which to go by.

It's been 5 weeks and 1 day since I've been bleeding. I'm worried something could be wrong and was wondering what causes this kind of bleeding? I haven't been under any stress, changed my diet, or started any kind of exercise I normally do. So I know it's not a lifestyle thing. If you could help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thyroid, quantum HCG, Progesterone, and a few others. also he said the bleeding would probably continue. He gave me prenatal samples. it has been 4 days since the bright bleeding and heavy crammping began there was a little stringy dark stuff but very light blood. Could I be pregnant with implantation bleeding?
At 52, probably less than 10% of women with postmenopausal bleeding have uterine cancer. At age 85, about 75% of women with bleeding have cancer. It would be unusual for ovarian cancer to manifest as postmenopausal bleeding. It may be that your symptoms are related to some hormonal type of influence but hormones include thyroid, prolactin, in addition to estrogen.
So I suggest it wise for you to go and get thoroughly checked. Ovarian cysts are notorious also for bleeding and many hypo and hyper patients have them. See your gyn and get it checked out. Cheers!
She sent me for uterine ultrasound and I was told I had endomentrium hypoplasia. It is a build up of the lining of the endodometrium and I had to have a d&c. They checked for cancer, because if the lining is to thick it can cause cancer. I also went off the hrt because I didn't want it to come back and have to have a d&c done again and have ultrsounds done all the time. But now i have hot flashes, and consider myself a wreck.
