    Hi Twizzle

    I read your post and had a flashback sad I had these pains every month for about 2 years before asking to be referred to a gyni. My pain was caused by endo and cysts in womb linin. I had a ablation (womb lining removed) and a coil inserted last August . So far so good for the pain and very light periods (though low libido sad ). Go back to GP , the pain is awful.

    Hi Twizzle

    Not sure if I'm qualified to answer this as even though I have a lot of menopausal symptoms I'm still not sure I'm going through it.confused

    I have cramp pains as though I'm going to bleed way before I'm due, then it's really bad when I'm bleeding then eases off when I've finished but still niggling there. This could of course be the fault of my fibroids which are due for eviction on the 7th April, can't come soon enough sad

    Dear Twizzle3... I am 52 and started missing periods July 2016. I would skip a month or two or more and than have a period. I just got my period again today. My last period I had was in Nov 2016. I have the pains you are having too. Mine are much heavier than they use to be. This is normal. We get to have a myriad of symptoms that come and go and linger. FUN... NOT!!! Even when I do not get my period I have this cramping. I always had 7 day cycles. Now, when I do have a period, it may last two, three or five days. I recently had a follow up with my gyno and she said it is normal. I also get excruciating migraines now whenever I get my period. I had a saliva test and have low progesterone and cortisol. Was prescribed Progesterone. Estrogen levels are normal. The progesterone has helped with insomnia and joint pain but still do not feel like myself. I hope this puts you at ease. Hope you feel better (((Hugs)))
