Menopause periods lasting longer

Common Questions and Answers about Menopause periods lasting longer


Avatar n tn 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.....
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn have had relatively normal periods, except the past few months.... coming earlier.. some lasting longer, 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.
Avatar n tn I finally went to my OB in the beginning of November who did some tests on me and said that I was experiencing menopause. 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.
Avatar n tn I had been pretty regular up until the last year or so, and then I would have slightly shorter and sometimes longer periods. 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.
Avatar f tn The boyfriend, I had before my current one lasted for several months. And my first signs of longer periods 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.
Avatar n tn it took exactly 1 year and 3 months 4 my periods to return i am now havin very heavy painful periods every other week and this is ruinin my life. i have no sex life and am desperate 4 a baby.
Avatar n tn My GP has been NO HELP! She seems obsessed with the menopause. I'm 51 and having erratic periods 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"!
Avatar n tn I am 36 years old and have had 3 children,For the first time this month I had 2 periods in 15 days. The first heavy and lasting 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.
Avatar n tn 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. periods are light, but longer - 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!
485043 tn?1224174187 I have been told by Endo I am Anemic but I hear lots of women with Hashimotos are. So I haven't worried. Periods 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.
Avatar n tn It would go away and I wouldn't notice it for several months. About a month ago, I began noticing it lasting longer 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.
Avatar n tn I used to have a small waist • My periods have shortened from being heavy and lasting 6-7 days to being irregular and lasting 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.
390388 tn?1279639813 Now my periods are lasting 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.
Avatar n tn I'm 43 years old and have had pretty 'normal' periods. 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.
Avatar n tn A. As menopause 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.
Avatar f tn I'm 47, I still have regular periods lasting 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?
Avatar f tn 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 lasting longer, then they quit, most often they get further apart but mt dr said they can go both ways
Avatar n tn Im 46, for the pass two days I've had of and on light headedness, today pain in upper left back when swallowing food, and menstrual that came two weeks early and lasting longer than usual. This is my eighth day.
Avatar n tn I had a heartattack back in July and since then every other month I go longer then the month before, and the cramps get stronger,during the long periods. Any soloutions on what to do about them?
Avatar f tn I had a very similar experience prior to my hysterectomy. I had been having periods lasting 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.
Avatar n tn Periods! EEKK I am hoping menopause will come early! Since my tubal they are periods 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!...
Avatar f tn 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 lasting longer. 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?
Avatar f tn 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 longer lasting 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.
Avatar n tn Help!!! For the past 6 months or so my periods have become longer and longer 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.
Avatar n tn Not as heavy as I had before the surgery but enough of one. I thought I would not be having periods for years and by then I would be in to menopause. I had the ablation because of constant heavy bleeding. At the most, I would get two weeks between periods that were lasting anywhere from 9 to 21 days. I so do not want to go back to that but not sure if I want to the expense of a surgery again if it will only last two years. I am not happy.
1033165 tn?1309439016 Are these from synthroid levels too low or could it be menopause? I had an ablation done almost 3 years ago so I no longer get periods. 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?
Avatar f tn It seems like my discomfort is lasting longer than it used to. Beyond the time I start bleeding. I know I am rambling... so on Monday I scheduled an emergency appointment. My doctor thinks I have endometriosis, so first he is having me try Nora-BE for a few months and then he said the Laproscopy is next. I am wondering if I am in danger by waiting for the drug that would induce menopause.
