Bleeding again i'm 60!

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am scared again, I hadn't had a period bleeding since last June when I started a very very very heavy period since not having one for almost two years, so in June and July 2016 I had pap smears, internal ultra sound and bisopies including 5 tubes of blood and my hormone blood work which in June 2016 after all the test results and bleeding my obgyn says blood work results some showed me still premenopausal  and not menopause and I may have a period again well it all stopped and went little over 1 year of no bleeding BUT and today I woke up and wiped and had bright blood all over the toliet paper my heart started racing and panic set in. I soaped up and right now no more blood unless its going to start back up today or tonight, the last two days I had lower back ache and such. I'm now 60 , please pray for me and that it's not internal bleeding from my Diverticulitis. It was bright red blood on toilet paper after wiping from urinating. It's Saturday so can't call obgyn until Monday.  Scared and can't help but panic!  This ever happening to an one else MY age group. All test results in 2016 was normal. Now Oct 2017 I wake up and wipe with bright red blood all over toilet paper. I hope to hear from anyone trying to calm heart rate down.

    Hey Crosado, 9 times out of 10 it is nothing to worry about. We have had a few health scares in my family and each time I said not to worry until you know it is actually something worth worrying about. Every time it turned out to be nothing serious. So try to stay calm until you see your gynae.

    Sorry you're going through this.  From what I've read on this site, women do have this happen.  But you are right in going to your ob/gyn to check.  I understand what you're going through--but you are going to find out what's causing this, not hope that "it all goes away" as so many women do.  Usually, things like this can be sorted, if found in time.  You're in my prayers.

    Please let us know how you get on. xx

      Yeah the scary is I had this happen in 2016 in which I hadn't had a period in almost two years then, and now its been 14 months no bleeding until today. I pray it's not coming through vaginal area and it be internal and not coming from uterus.  I had 3 bowl movements and see no blood there or in toilet as of yet and nothing when I wipe so far today except when I urinated this morning and wiped and there was blood all over the toilet paper. I am not sexually active nor mess with myself , I am a widow so I have no ideal and even pushing toilet paper up in some still shows no blood unless its going to pick up later again. NO one scare me because I ALREADY have a serious panic and anxiety disorder when it comes to health and I don't take any meds at all for anything.

    Hi there crosoda8 

    Listen, I know your scared and thoughts racing BUT slow down and breath, that’s right just breath sister... I know it’s hard but don’t let your mind take you to those places.

    i know , trust me I have done this.

    The good news is IS you last seen her in 2016 and ALL WAS GOOD; this was only a year ago... this is good news...

    I truly get it but allow yourself to remember that...This is very normal what you are experiencing. I know it’s going to be hard to shut your mind off but take 5 minuets at a time and try and get through this weekend...

    i will be lifting you up in prayer I promise 

    🙏🌻

      Thank you so MUCH for praying for me! I am trying to calm the heart beat and racing thoughts. I have that constant lookout for bleeding with diverticulitis and the female bleeding :-(  I want you to know though I REALLY appreciate the prayer. I quote Jeremiah 17:14 and trying to keep my faith strong.

      Marcia, may I ask how old you are?  I'm not on HRT and yours may have been due to the adjustment of your HRT. I wiped and there was blood all over the toilet paper but then nothing at all afterwards as of yet. Has this ever happened to anyone on here you wipe and theres blood all over toilet paper but nothing at all after that? I am scared it will come more at any time but so far no more. Can there be a time where you wipe and have the blood but the next time you wipe nothing and nothing after that the whole day and so far the next?

      Cmt, Thanks it is very frightening because my blood pressure is all over the place I will get another primary physician opinion because I wake up with my ears totally blocked big sound in it very dizzy my BP was very highly I took the amlodipine and went to the doctor on Monday at 9 am it was very hard to put myself together and go there thinking that I also get to work after. The doctor didn't see me I had a nurse appointment he took my BP and of course it was ok I took the medication in the morning is not the point, doesn't suppose to have any interest in knowing why I am feeling like this, he didn't want to take test blood or hormones panel and send me the OBGYN Because that was his order. I took my disappointed and went to the OBGYN who was very kind and showed interest took my blood and order a complete panel of everything.  This morning I took the synthroid and BP went up again the sensation was so high that I took the BP Immediately and is going down slowly. Feel so scare sooooooooo frightened and I need to find another primary someone who put a little more interés
