Common Questions and Answers about Very heavy periods menopause

Sounds like you are certain you are done with the babies, and this would be great with all the camping you do. I don't remember if it is a pill form or shot. Maybe ask. Heavy periods are the worst! I remember when I was a kid, my mom would wear two pads, one on bottom and one on back of panties so that she would not leak everywhere and then have to sleep on a towel! She had a hysterectomy when I was 16 and has never been happier!
Preceding this is a period of time called perimenopause where your hormones can fluctuate wildly and your periods can become infrequent, light or very heavy. I spent a good 7yrs in perimenopause and am now in my first year of menopause and I am 47yo. You are not in menopause until you have not had a period for two years.
The erratic nature of periods during perimenopause wouldn't concern me, but the heavy flow/clotting is not normal for me, so that would spur me to call my doctor. Did you check in with your doc?
I have not had any symtoms. My periods have always been heavy so I could not tell. I did see a slight change with them lasting a little longer 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.....
Hi I am 36 and i have been having trouble with heavy and prolonged periods for a few years now, I have been back and forth to the docs as i have other syptoms as well (weight gain, tearfullness etc) My doctor literally laughed in my face when i mentioned the menopause!!

Hi am 49 and I'm so tired of having my period, I have it very heavy and it last up to 3 weeks then it will stop and be back in one week starting all over again. I have never missed one period yet, this has been going on for almost 2 years now I'm ready to tell my doctor to take everything out I'm done, I have some hot flashes but more cold my body feels like it's filled with ice. I told my doctor and she just gave me that look like your crazy.
Before the flight, I was nervous that I would have a period during it (I am very heavy), but I was due a week or two before (I think 5 weeks or so was what I was expecting, but as usual when I want it to start it didn't, so I tried ginger tea and vitamin C but nothing worked. I came on when I landed, so obviously my body was responding to the stress.
Hello, Menopause is the most common cause of heavy bleeding.it acuss hormonal imbalance which can cause irregular and heavy or scanty periods.How old are you? Menopause can occur in age 40-55 but premenopause is not the only cause of irregular and constant bleeding in periods.Other causes are there. Excessive amount or duration of menstrual flow, at more or less regular intervals is called menorrhagia.
Tara, I'm 46 & my symptoms are almost exactly like yours. As a rule, I am almost every 28 days too - however, in the last 1.5 years, I've been experiencing darker then normal discharge (strong odour) and repeated spotting & some heavy periods 1 week apart & bleed for 2 or more weeks. My Dr. tells me its hormone fluctuations.....& this could go on for years - I certainly hope not!!
I had three daughters and I had the tubal ligation 10 years ago. Since I was 11 years old when I had my period it was very irregular and heavy. I still have heavy periods. I don't have hot flushes yet, or any changes in my body, I have been loosing weight (30 pounds). Other than I am very depress and sentimental. I cry all the time. I have mood swings. And I am mad for no reason. I been dealing with anxiety also. I get mad easily. Geeezzz what is going on ? Any ideas ?
does no periods at all mean menopause at a early age without me knowing due to my body never going through what every other female has gone through. I do get alot of stomach pains where my stomach feels heavy sometimes and sometimes it feels tight. Does it mean my body is trying to tell me something due to the lack of periods that i never have. And can i still have children even though i never get my periods.
In the last year have started to have very bad pms and heavy periods, that was up until 2 months ago. I still get the pms but also accompanied by migraine headaches and my periods are virtually non-existent. I also have bouts of extreme sweats and feeling hot. My Gp put me on dydrogesterone for the pms which is helping. I would go back to himk but am beginning to feel a though I'm never out of his surgery, please advise as to if you think this is the menopause or a side effect of the pills.
Thank goodness I say it was terrible, Any ways my question is could this have brought on menopause,im 43 and use too have heavy periods and clots,where as the last two months I haven't had a period... I haven't felt unwell still feeling the same as I always feel..??
I had the Novasure procedure done on August 7th this year, due to very heavy periods and being very Anemic. I had a watery brown discharge and on the 18th had a 5 day period. I was very discouraged so I called my doctor and they said that it was not abnormal for this to happen. I ended that cycle and continued the watery brown discharge until September the 7th when yet again I started another period. This time lasting 10 days and then continuing with the watery brown discharge.
I am 41 years old, and for a couple of months now my periods have been all different. One month 4 days, which is normal for me, first day is usually very heavy and uncomfortable, then lighter and lighter days 2 and 3 then day 4 just clean out, then done...then I won't have my next one for like 5 weeks. they seem to be getting farther apart. And now this one, which I may add has been going for 8 days now...not normal at all for me..
Yes this quite normal, very annoying but normal. I think with menopause its expect the unexpected! You can still conceive believe it or not. You can say after no period for a year that you have gone through the menopause, but for some women it can be 2 years. Periods can be quite heavy or light but they are very irregular. Its not a nice time, especially when you think they have stopped and then 6 months later you get a period! Hugs!
The past year, I have had more regular periods, but mood swings and heavy cycles. I am 47 years old. Last month, my cycle was very heavy, clotting, had so many symptoms of menopause, it was unbelievable (hot flashes, mood swings, insomnia, tired all the time, dryness, urine leakage, etc. Urine leakage has been happening for about a year and getting worse. This past month, I cried and cried and was so depressed for no apparent reason. I didn't want to go outside or speak to anyone.
Let me tell you!!!! That was the best thing I ever did!! I used to have very heavy periods, huge clots (bigger than a ping pong ball) and bleed for weeks at a time. I could not even use tampons any more. At night I used depends!! (once) Now since this "baloon surgery" I have not had a period in 1 1/2 years!! they also refer to this surgery as an alternitive to a hystorectomy. The surgery is painless (they put you out) the next day I was fine.
My periods are irregular, sometimes heavy, sometimes very light and very unpredictable. My biggest concern is the leg pain and aches I've been experiencing. It used to be that I'd only have this kind of pain on the day I started my period. Now it is constant. I wonder if this has anything to do with circulation. Does anyone else have these symptoms??
During the last year and a half, my periods have been fairly heavy, with the very occasional lighter one. And now nothing for 3 months. No hot flashes, no mood swings, I actually feel great! Should I be concerned? What could possibly be the cause of no periods? Thanks for any info!

Sometimes my periods last 3 weeks to 4 weeks out of a month .Is this normal? My periods can be very heavy. Some months I don't get anything at all.My periods have off since my last child was born which has been 10 yrs now.
When I was still having my periods before I became menopausal at age 55, my periods were usually very heavy and quite painful. For years , I had to take Naproxen which is a muscle relaxant prescribed by my doctor every period. Anyway, sounds to me like the beginning of becoming menopausal. I wish you luck. Personally, I found it a relief not to have to worry about my periods anymore. Menopause does have its benefits.
I am 45 yrs young, In the past year I have had several HEAVY periods. In Nov my period lingered for 2 weeks.I did not have one in Dec. This month I am going on my third week of period.

I am 49 and have started having very heavy periods. Everything checks out fine. Doctor said its menopause. He has prescribed provera 10 mg 1 a day. I have researched it and don't see where any other reviews have said anything about taking it every day-just on then off and back on. I meet with him next friday but was trying to get an answer before then as to what the difference would be.
So you had your last child when you were 36 and you have had extremely heavy periods since. When were you diagnosed with thyroid disease? I started having heavy periods when i was 39 it was not until i was 46 that i decided to seek support for losing weight. I decided to join a sureslim centre so i paid my £460 and i was sent for a full blood test at a local private hospital.
