Period after 15 months

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hey everyone. After 15 months of no menstrual cycle, last month I had all the symptoms of my period, sore breasts, increased appetite and my face even broke out (I'm 53). Sure enough I started bleeding, it was a 6 day text book period for me. I contacted my general practitioner who referred me to a gyn. I was always told that any bleeding after menopause was considered abnormal. So I began to worry. I reluctantly had an endometrial biopsy done per the gyn and I am happy to say that the tissue was not cancerous. I worried so much while waiting for my results. I hope this post can ease someone else's mind.

    So glad you are ok. I guess as far as hormones are concerned there is no normal. Too bad you had to go thru all the worry, but sounds like you figured out what was going on by having all the signs of a period coming on before going to the doc.

    Meno is such a little beeotch.

    it was very nice of you to share this. I'm so glad everything was fine. I think what would be bad is if a person didn't know it was abnormal and let it go. the waiting for any test results is terrible. i know what you went through. for me, its the worst part of peri.

    That is very useful to know, thank you Rose. Sorry you had the scary wait for results - the waiting is horrible. Wouldn't it be great if they could give you the results there and then. I've had a few MRIs in my life and I often think - they can see it on the screen, why can't the consultant come in and tell me now?
