Period after almost 14 months

Posted , 4 users are following.


I started my period late last week after almost 14 months clear!

I've just been researching and it states that i should see a doctor? Is this correct even if it's my first one after so long?

    I would go and see a doctor/nurse at your practice.

    I started bleeding nearly five months ago after being period free for more than four years..

    I spoke to a medical professional and they said if you have been period free for more than a year and you start bleeding you should contact them and they will have you looked at within gynaecology within two weeks.

    I was seen within two weeks and I had a very large endometrial polyp removed under General anaesthetic totally within 6 weeks.

    I am not a doctor and I'm a big feardie (Scottish) when it comes to all that as I have health anxiety and I've had it all done and also a merina coil fitted which they said keeps the lining of the womb thinner as a thicker lining can cause bleeding.

    Any questions. don't hesitate contact me as I've recently went through all this.

    Don't wait for the bleeding to stop as I was still bleeding up to the day of my operation.

    I am also spotting with getting the merina coil , which is normal , they say you could bleed

    for up to six months.

    Seriously they see that kinda thing everyday of the week and I am uber frightened with health anxiety and I am very glad I didn't wait.

    Good luck with whatever choice you make.
