Menopause periods more frequent

Common Questions and Answers about Menopause periods more frequent


Avatar f tn I am 40 years old. Am I going through menopause? My periods aare all messed up. Some times I get them twice a month. Sometimes they only last a few days and are very light. Sometimes they are extremely heavy and painful, with HUGE clots. I've had ovarian cysts before. This has been going on for a few years. My doctor has recommended possibly cauterizing (sp ) my uterus to minimize the flow of blood. Has anyone had this done?
Avatar n tn I would like to know if it is possible that fibroids can cause this discharge? Are the frequent periods possibly due to the onset of menopause? I do not always have periods this close together, just occasionally. I have an ultrasound and gyn appointment, but it isn't until May 1 and I am worried. Thank you for any help you can offer.
Avatar f tn Some women even get close to the 1 year mark of no periods only to have them start up again. And some have more frequent bleeding than normal. The bleeding may be heavier or lighter. So anything goes.
Avatar n tn (Detailed in the menopause forum too), but I was diagnosed as early menopause at the same time that I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's. I am 42 yrs old. Last period was 10/5/05 & on new years day woke up with what I believe(d) to be a period. Just now, after 8 mos on Synthroid, is my levels to where they should be, & I was wondering if this could be a reversal in the menopausal thing......maybe not full reversal, but hormone shift due to thyroid????
Avatar n tn Menarche and menopause are also important causes of irregular periods. Some time is taken for the body to get used to the hormonal imbalance during menarche and menopause. So the irregularity. Are you having heavy bleeding or pain during menstruation along with the irregularity? Another important and frequent cause of irregular periods are PCOS and fibroid uterus. PCOS causes cysts to form on the ovaries, interfering with regular ovulation.
Avatar n tn I only want to be on it for a few months. Is it more than likely my periods will get more and more sporadic? I don't know if I have PCOS but does it really matter? I have something wrong. Every month I don't ovulate I just get so sad. I know ovulation makes women more attractive to men, and I don't have that. I've had depression and been on anti-depressants for 2 years. It could partly be related to the the irregular periods I've had since age 18.
Avatar f tn Though at your next gyno appointment I'd ask about menopause and make sure everything is ok. Usually it tapers off when menopause hits, instead of just ceasing to exist. Have fun with the next coming years.
Avatar f tn Symptoms usually start with more frequent periods around 21 days and then begin to get longer between periods and missing months. But some people just go straight to the missing periods bit. Mood swings are awful it's like you have permanent pms and your bust do hurt and tingle on and off. And yes food cravings are so strong on and off. The best test to get is blood tests for FSH which is taken on the 3rd day of your periods if you're still getting them.
Avatar n tn I am 48 y.o. I have never been exactly regular with my periods, however, have not had any difficulty having children. I would go sometimes 65 days without menustrating. If 66 days had passed, I figured I was pregnant, and was usually right. I had 4 healthy pregnancies. However, this is not my problem. Now, at my age, I am constantly getting my period. I have never felt worse during them. I usually do not make it passed 2 weeks before I start again.
53833 tn?1235000229 I also went through the same thing. My periods became less frequent and much more lighter and shorter, then I would skip a month or so, and then another period would start. As soon as it was over I'd have another one if 2 weeks or so, then go 3 months without one and then have 2 in the same month - some just spotty others light for 2-3 days and that's it. ( I used to bleed heavy for a full 7 days!
Avatar n tn Excess facial hair (big time), loss of libido, painful dry intercourse, irregular periods(before the pill), fatigue, breast tenderness at odd times of the month, slight incontinence and more frequent urination, mood swings, depression, ADD, sudden flushness and rosy cheeks, restless sleep, hot and cold through the night, bloating, constipation, achy joints in legs, especially the hip (this just started to occur), tinnitus, and sometimes I have a hard to explain tingling sensation in my back a
667937 tn?1227762298 I did have very irregular periods when I had a uterus. I would get 2 sometimes more periods a month. And then there were the periods that lasted 3 months straight with spotting in between weeks. I know a woman is born with as many ova as she will ever have. Could I have ovulated so many over the years that here now at 36 I am going through the change? Or is it normal for a 36 year old to go through the change.
11852 tn?1216845043 It takes a while, at least 6 months, for thyroid levels to get regulated after what you've been through. Menopause can certainly affect sleep. It is very common and one of the most frequent symptoms. Lunesta is not supposed to be addictive and is supposed to be safe for long term. New sleep aids continue to come out such as Rozerem that are also not supposed to be addictive. Estrogen is very effective for sleep problems related to menopause.
Avatar n tn I just want to encourage you to do some more research into the different types of estrogens available. More and more physicians who know anything at all about HRT or BHRT (Bioidentical HRT) do not recommend the type of estrogen that is in Birth Control pills for menopausal use.
Avatar n tn About six months ago, I started feeling very tired and yet could not sleep at night. I would go from being very cold to being very hot. I have also had more frequent headaches and had had low energy. After going to the doctor on numerous occasions, I finally had the proper blood work done and when it returned, he told me that I was experiencing menopause!!! Did I mention that I am only 39???? This is insane!! Now looking back, my mood swings were quiet extreme.
Avatar n tn Then they became a bit more frequent and lighter. Now they seem to be all over the place but I never miss one. Is this more likely indicative of PCOS, premature ovarian failure or normal for someone my age?
Avatar m tn Women are considered to be more susceptible than men to the changes caused by serotonin. The frequent mood swings that women experience during periods and after menopause are considered to be caused by the change in hormone production that disturbs the level of this neurotransmitter. The effect of food on your sense of well being is short lived. That, however, does not mean that you can go on a binge, eating foods that help serotonin production.
Avatar f tn Oh, and if possible you may want to start reading it before your follow up visit to your doctor so you will be more informed about menopause.
2120995 tn?1334908007 Hello, 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.
Avatar f tn What I mean is, many of my more severe symptoms occur leading up to, or during, my periods. However, say maybe 40% are not close to a period. Similarly, since my period occupies 1/4 of my life (or half my life, if I include the week leading up to it) it may just be coincidence. I've had a bad couple of days, and my period should start in two days. That's why I'm still wondering if it might be hormone-related. I am in excellent physical health, overall.

Avatar f tn A year after he was born we decided to try for one more before ending the baby chapter in our lives. I continued to keep my diet healthy and am still taking Metformin. My periods have been regular every month since he was born up until June.
Avatar n tn If it happens occasionally, it is likely not a problem.
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 Also, the nausea, migraines, fatigue, etc, are indications of hormone imbalance and anemia. Are her periods heavy? If so, she may have fibroids and/or endometriosis. How is her diet? Is she eating or drinking anything that may be causing her bladder to inflame? Is her life very stressful? It all comes back to how she is dealing with stress in her school, at home, during hobbies, etc...
Avatar f tn At the age of 30 I spotted between periods once a year maybe twice. In my 30's I spotted off and on but more often now that I am in my 40's I spot almost every month. My cycle is normally 34 days I spot normally anywhere from day 14-18, I believe this to be ovulation but recently I notice when I get off the treadmill exercising I am spotting and yes it is mid cycle. I also find I feel Crampy in my lower area front and back, is this ovulation or Perimenopause?
1701654 tn?1307162023 And before you all say the 2 obvious things, I'm not pregnant, I took htps and all neg. and I'm too young for menopause. I am more than sure it has to do with hormones. So my question is does anyone know what it is or is anyone going through this? What would the best approach to resolve the cramps, I love not having my period, but I can't stand all the rest......
305180 tn?1279720347 system can wreak havoc including early menopause or even a surgical type menopause (complete ovarian failure). The procedures that can cause more harm than good are tubals, hysterectomies, ovary removals (even just one ovary), Fallopian tube removal, endometrial ablations. The ovaries of an intact, unaltered woman produce hormones into her 80's for optimal health. Unfortunately, very few women are given the facts about these procedures before signing on the dotted line.
