Feeling very anxious..  I’m 52 and been peri menapausal for 4 years.. my period are irregular. I have my period now and my flow is very heavy yesterday and today. This happened to me the period before last. Also cramps, lower back and hip soreness. Has anyone else had this happen?

    Sorry to hear this it's horrible it's just another symptom of menopause as I was like that about six months before my periods stopped altogether so hopefully you will shortly be stopping 😊

    Ditto.  I am 51 and have been bleeding heavily during my periods (which are mostly regular) for almost two years.  I also spot during some cycles.  My doctor did a biopsy and thankfully everything was okay.  Just another horrible symptom of peri.

      Did they do a biopsy after they did a vag u/s and saw your lining was thick?

      I'm being told they want to do a biopsy, but I feel the lining and the bleeding are just a part of peri.

    They did not do a ultrasound.  She immediately did a biopsy because it had been going on for a year.

    Hi; my bleeding is uncontrollable. I’m 49 and have fibroids. My period still comes every month between 24 day cycle and 31 day cycle. Days 2 and 3 are dreadful! Today is day 3 and I have had to use pads; no point using tampons. I will soak an 8 hour pad within 60-90 mins; I lose clots too. This is exactly the same pattern as my mother followed. Just trying to live with it but it’s just awful

    I too was like that had to change every hour soaked through a super plus tampon and towel had to have days off work because I couldn't leave the house then I started talking to my gp who sent me to a gynaecologist and they did tests and said I could have the lining of my womb thinered until the appointment came I took tablets which was, tranexamic acid 500mg 3 times a day while I was bleeding and it slowed the bleeding so I was able to carry on with life and sleep. Now I haven't had a period since November and I'm 46 following my mom as she was young when she went through the menopause too hope this helps ladies please don't suffer with heavy bleeds there is help

    😘
