A bit concerned re bleeding

Posted , 10 users are following.

I am peri and since I found out my periods are all over the place, been 2 years now. However the one thing for sure is I have signs of blood everyday. I can go all day long with no blood but then all of a sudden there will be a slight jelly like discharge with blood stain in my knickers. I guess it's like a bloody mucus. I've always put this down to the menopause but I stupidly decided to google it as it's just annoying and everything comes back with cervical cancer symptoms!! I had a smear beginning of the year and all was fine but getting myself a bit worked up about it and as we know ladies anxiety is even worse during menopause! Does anyone else suffer with this type of discharge/blood/mucus? Thank you all x

    Hi Tracky, All prolonged bleeding should be investigated even if to find out that it's nothing to worry about.

      So besides of the pap smear  you would benefit from beeing seem by a gynecologist and he/she will probably have have a scan. Then it may be that you're just having oestrogen dominance and that you'll need to compensate it with some progesterone.

      When the bleeding is prolongued there's, sometimes, a phenomenon of low ferritin which carries more bleeding.

      What to to?

      Take iron+folate tablets for a few months.

      Other strategies for bleeding of unspecified causes: bioflavonoids as a supplement. 

      I hope this is useful to you. Teresa.

      I agree with this. ^ See a doctor. It is PROBABLY just hormonal and not worry-worthy...BUT if it's every single day, even if it is hormonal with no illness present, you'll still want to deal with it. Peri is a pain, so sorry. smile

    Tracky, during perimenopause, almost anything can happen regarding bleeding.  But definitely have it checked out.  I wouldn't worry too much about it.  It's bleeding after menopause that should be worrisome.

    Hi Tracky , sounds a bit like my symptoms which I would describe in a similar way. I like you Have regular smears and worried about that, but as it has been going on through 2 smears I don't worry so much about that now. I was diagnosed with cervical erosion and treated, now have been told I have fibroids so on it goes ! Try not to worry as I reckon it's all part and parcel of the peri menapuse .but I'd have a chat with your GP as there is help out there ! I don't have any pain and it sounds like you don't either . Also it's not really heavy bleeds , so from that point of view I think we are lucky !!

    Hi Tracky, I bled for 49 days none stop! It was always very heavy and was really getting me down.I was scared to go out of the house incase i got caught short. I went to see a doctor and was told it was "Normal" Maybe so, but it was me having to put up with it and i'd been told on this forum that although normal for a lot of women, there is treatment out there. I decided to see my usual GP and he gave me a prescription for Norethisterone. The bleeding stopped within 3 days I was ecstatic! Go and see your GP, they'll be able to help you out. I hope you get it sorted out very soon :-)
