Heavy period menopause

Common Questions and Answers about Heavy period menopause


Avatar n tn You might have a uterine fibroid. Get checked by your doctor. A three-week period is worth diagnosing.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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
Avatar n tn This month I am now toward the end of the third week with my period and the flow is slightly heavy at times and bright red. Can this be normal when approaching menopause? My periods were always 7-9 days long before and every 21 days. I have not experienced hot flashes but my skin and eyes have been really dry the last few months.
Avatar f tn I have been bleeding for over 3 weeks, extremely heavy with clots, and very bad cramps. I am 47 years old I realize it is menopause, but when should I be concerned?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn Then I was bleeding whole November, then 1 week off - now it started again. My breasts are tender - everything seems like normal heavy period just very long (1 month or longer). I also have IUD (good for 10 years)- this is 11th year. I am afraid of ovarian cancer but generally I am feeling good except for slight menstrual-type cramps. Should I take out IUD & get on birth-control pills? Could this all be menopause related? Please help.
Avatar n tn I asked my doctor 2 years ago when was I going to go threw menopause. He said you are already going threw it. Surprise to me!! 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.
Avatar n tn I am 60 yrs old and haven't had a period in almost 12 yrs. Apprximately 3 weeks ago I started having a bloody (very light) dark discharge. It never goes away. I have no other symptons. I haven't been to the doctor in about 27 yrs. What could be wrong?

So far I have had no more bleeding this month....yet. on top of the frequent periods my other symptoms are insomnia, fatigue from lack of sleep, mood swings, irritability,vaginal dryness, dry skin, hair shedding, frequent bathroom trips and I'm not pregnant, NO sex drive whatsoever.....

Avatar f tn my period is crazy it comes when it wants light, heavy twice a month since im having so much dizziness could this be a result of menopause?
Avatar f tn I have been going thru menopause for 1 1/2 yrs, I was put om premilin .
Avatar n tn the first week it was light now it is so heavy with blood clogs. Is this normal or is this the start of menopause. I will be 46 this June. Please help!!
Avatar n tn However, in the past year, I've noticed my period being heavy the FIRST TWO days, now it's heavy the first day. I too, wonder if this is pre-meno pause. I took birth control for several years before, during and after marriage. I stop birth control for 3 years now and have not gotten pregnant with the natural method. I am curious, and no ping-pong size blood clots but there are bouts of heavy over a quarter-size ones...
Avatar f tn I'd say your period is the victim of hormonal changes. Heavier bleeding when on a period is common or menopause AND spotting like you describe also can happen. Talk to your doctor next time you see them. Mine says my few days of heavy bleeding are normal even though I went through 40 plus years of a different type of period preceding it.
Avatar f tn I have had hot flashing and thought I was well through menopause. However, yesterday I began spotting and today am having a full blown heavy period. Does this happen or should I be concerned?
Avatar f tn I am turning 52 in 2 weeks. recenty had a heavy period, with clots. The last menstrual period I had was 32 months ago. I had a vaginal ultra sound on fri, and they found a fibroid. This made me feel better, funny to say this, but, I was relieved to know that their was a reason. I have been feeling alot of pressure on my bladder, a full feeling all the time. Also when the scan was done my bowel appeared to be full also. No wonder I am so uncomfortable.
Avatar n tn Usually before menopause starts (complete cessation of period for 12 months), period becomes irregular, you may miss one or two month period, if pregnancy test is negative and period becomes further and further apart, it means menopause is near. Yes, during perimenopause, period can be quite heavy and lasted up to 7 days, small blood clots discharged sometimes(for my case).
Avatar f tn I have no other health problems. I am wondering though if I could be in menopause or not...I have not had a period for 60 days now. I have talked to different people and they said that they have gone a long time without one (not 60 days) and when they did get it it was horrible...pain and clots. Any help on this would be much appreciated.
