No period for 6 months.

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi ladies, I am 49 and have had no period for 6 months....until a week ago and it hasn't stopped since! It was light for first 2 days, then bam!! Lower tummy pain and heavy(very red)bleeding... 7 days in and no sign of it getting any lighter! Also, have a headache lingering with it. I was kind of hoping after not having one for 6 months, that my periods had come to an end, but obviously not. Anyone else experienced this? I'm shattered too!

    I was around your age, I didn't have a period for eight months. Then bam! Had one one every month for a year. Then it just stopped. I had one November 2010 and haven't had one since. I was 51.

    Hi Annie yes I remember when I just started to go into menopause Pryor I skipped a few periods and then it was 30 days of heavy bleeding a few light periods and everything completely stopped so you are probably on your way out and into menopause sometimes heavy bleeding is like the last hurrah.

    Totally part of the process
