Early menopause or cervical cancer

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hey all. I'm 48 and my periods are always on Time and lightish. The last four months they have been heavy. This past month I had a heave period a one week break (with some pinikish brown spotting) another three day period and now I'm spotting brown sometimes red. I've been to the docs and he said took blood tests and has booked me a pap. I'm also exhausted and can't be bothered to do anything. In fact my favorite day is to lie on the couch with my dogs eat as much sugar as possible and NOT talk to anyone haha. I haven't had the pap scan yet but ive looked at the symptoms and cervical cancers seems very similar to early menopause (I am in no pain) I'm just interested in other women's experiences

    Sounds like the beginning of perimenopause to me. It can last a few years. That's how mine started. I was shocked when I went from extremely regular cycles to not. And oh yeah, the couch and sugar too. LOL. I try to incorporate some healthy habits, but for me if I over do it, it has a negative affect. So I do what I can and try not to stress about it.

    Well I'm 51 and I'm experiencing exactly the same.

    I 've been bleeding for 3 weeks now (very lightly ) with only one day off! My last real period were in april and since tbat time its been very very strange .

    I see my doctor in one week.

    Everybody tells me it's perimenopause but I start being worried it might be a disease 🤤
