Extended periods...

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi..I just joined this group yesterday and was happy to find it!! I have been in peri for a few years now, first my periods moved closer together by a few days and got heavier with flooding, hot flashes and night sweats, then they moved farther apart and still were heavier with clotting but were a normal length of days, the last year I have been having less periods skipping a month or two and they are much lighter..I had a light five day period in May and skipped on in June, but this month I started on the tenth with light spotting that has progressed til now, nothing heavy...have had a few days of more normal period type flow but still very light with a few clots..it just won't stop though! I went to my GYN on the 18th..she did an exam and read my monthly diary of symptoms and said it is nothing to worry about..that sometimes it can go longer like this..anyone else had this experience? It worries me, which is another symptom I have..obsessive anxiety. I google my symptoms an have myself convinced I have every disease known to women!! Thankfully I have a patient hubby. <3
