bleeding after early menopause

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi. I'm 31 years old and 12 years ago I had leukemia. The last period I had was 11 years ago and I was told a year or so after that I had gone through early menopause due to the chemo and total body radiation. The last year or so I've occasionally had a tiny bit of pink discharge, I was concerned so went for an ultra sound and they said everything was as it should be and that was that. For the last 4 days I have had alot of brown discharge, a couple of times with bright blood, stomach cramps and headaches everyday. I'm quite worried as I shouldn't be having periods anymore so I don't know what it could be

    The light pink/dark brown bleeding you are describing sounds like classic peri/Meno hunni. Have you checked with your doc though just for peace of mind?

    Well done you on your recovery too - anyone who goes through that terribly harrowing experience and come out the other side is a true inspiration! Big hugs xxxx

    Are you taking HRT, it could be that you need to change to a different one.

    I assume you still have ovaries etc. maybe they have come back to life, this could be good news and worth getting a hormone blood test I would have thought.

    Hi ladies

    Thanks for the replies. I had a blood test then another one 2 weeks later, the receptionist at my docs surgery just said they were "normal" whatever that means.

    Im also having an ultrasound in 2 weeks.

    Really strange though as it's happening again at the moment, bleeding/brown discharge, stomach cramps, and this started exactly 30 days after the last one! Ive had it for 4 days now, it's very odd.

    I'm not back at my doctors for another 4 weeks and i just want some answers, it's so confusing
