    Hi Brittany,

    I had big clots, I’m almost certain it’s normal ! I actually did t take too much notice of it . . . That was over 2 years ago, it just stopped once they got further and further apart . . .  Have heard many say the same ! No need to worry I’m sure, but if it concerns you get it checked xxx

      Dear Brittay

      Im post meno (54 now) it's quite normal, I firstly in peri had a few heavy clotting periods (unusual for me at the time) and then I had long spotting periods, it was the first sign for me that I was going through the change. I think any change for us ladies is stressfull but I will warn you, this may be the start of more anxieties to come, I had many in peri which again is normal, every little thing will make you think you are dying! But I can safely say it does get better and hang in there, I have had alot of the symptoms in peri and get the odd one still in post menopause, anxiety and panic attacks followed my strange periods and gastitis, so dont panic if you experience these! Gastitis caused weight loss and appetite, so you can imagine what I was wondering was wrong with me! My advice is to stay on this forum it reqlly helped me but if you are really worried and concerned get checked out for your peace of mind x

    Hi there,

    I am 55 and for a couple of years my periods were very heavy with clots.  I know its tmi,sorry sad i would gush just walking, getting up from sitting, laughing.  I started to think that the pads nowadays were garbage.  They would also seem to take forever to start a flow, except if I had sex then it would come down, sorry again. I happen to mention to my gyno that my periods start with a brownish discharge- she said to count that as day.  I hadn't been.  Two months ago i had a 10 day period -brownish then really light just 1 little clot.  I have already missed 2 cycles, so I think I m inching closer, can you imagine at 55?
