Menopause and brown bleed.

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am 49 yrs old, my periods for the past few months have been just a few drops of brown blood....first it was for 3 days, then next month 2 days, now this month barely anything for one day only... Before that last year I was bleeding very heavy, suddenly the heavy bleeding stopped and I just get brown blood period. No spotting in between periods, I also have a fibroid 5cm. I started perimenopause 3 yrs ago.. Any advice please, is my periods going to stop altogether soon? Is this normal?

    Apologies iPad froze

    so my last period was 7days again continuation of brown, I was poorly with this this time, felt faint and weak.....not at all right very unwell, so much so that I passed out at work!!!!!!, oh did go to the doctors to get checked out,and I was fine? But told to canal back in IF it was to happen again!!!!.

    i have asked about this when I last went to the doctors and was told I nearing the end of periods!!!! IE: entering into the peri?

    if you are concerned go and see a doctor? 

    I believe this is whatbthey will tell you?

    good luck.
