Constant bleeding 6 months

Posted , 4 users are following.

I am 48 next month and know I am perimenopausal, hot flushes etc anyway since Jan I have had constant bleeding some days really heavy. Had a scan found cyst on ovary over 5cm and need a repeat scan next week to see if it's grown. I have been referred urgently to a gyno. However still have to wait a month for appointment. I am just really fed up with the constant bleeding so draining... has anyone experienced this as I am starting to believe their is something seriously wrong going on. Please can you share your experiences. I had an endiometrial eblation about 10 years back due to thickening of the linning of the womb. Much appreciated for your experiences of perimenoause no one seems to be able to tell me if this is normal

Thanks Lisa

    My sister had terrible bad bleeding (flooding) during perimenopause/menopause. She would have periods that lasted for 3weeks out of the month. She would wear 2 super absorbant tampons and a super duty pad all at once and have to change them Many times a day.

    One time our mother went shopping with us and many sister was a long time in the department store bathroom.

    My mom went in and asked if my sister was OK. My sister said "yes, just changing my feminine hygiene products. But will you bring me some wet paper towels?"

    My sister opened the stall door to get the towels from my mother. My sister's hands were covered in blood.

    My mother cried out "Oh, my God! You are hemmoraging! We need to go to the hospital!"

    My sister said "I've been to the Dr. She said it is just menopause "

    This happens to many women.

    You need to keep you doctor appointment though to Make sure that everything is OK.

    Our bodies are going through so many changes right now. With so many strange and scary and uncomfortable symptoms.

    Read through the posts on this sight and you will find many that resonate with you.

    I found and continue to find comfort in the fact that I am not alone in this menopause journey.

    That other women are experiencing the same symptoms and trials that I am.

    See your doctor, definitely.

    I hope you find relief soon.

    I also have had ovarian cysts. Always on my right ovary. They have always popped.

    They have been painful.

    Once I had very bad pain in my lower right abdomen. My chiropractor thought it was my appendix.

    I went to my General Practitioner Doctor and he did a pelvic exam and said it wasn't my appendix, it was my ovary.

    So, he sent me to the hospital and I had an ultrasound, one just scanned over my abdomen and one up inside me.

    They showed a large cyst had popped and the whole area was filled with the fluid that was inside the cyst. That fluid was causing the whole area to be irritated and inflammed.

    I just had to wait until my body absorbed the fluid for the pain to go away.

    But, every woman and every situation is different.

    Make sure to see your doctor. Just to make sure that it's not something serious

    Take care.
