Period pains and no period ?

Posted , 7 users are following.

So I am on here again . Another problem to add . I have recently from a stomach / flu bug and have been feeling very low . I was due on a week ago , but as yet nothing apart from a bad head . Today though my back aches and I keep getting sharp pains as if my period is going to start . I 51 and have been having peri symptoms for over 3 years now and I never know where I am with my periods anymore . Are these pains normal or should I be worried . The thing is I worry about everything and get myself in such a state . Ive even questioned the flu Ive just had like is it my gallbladder or something else and now I feel rough again . Last week my husband basically said that I was a hypocondriac , so I cant mention this . What do I do ?

    Hi I keep getting period pains without bleeding it's weird. My hubby is like that to I try to ignore him as they have no idea what we are going through. I started the patch 2 weeks ago so think the pains might be that I'm hoping they get better. My anxiety is awful to which really don't help. Take care hun x

    Please don't worry. I am exactly the same. Had a very bad flu. Then period pains and no period. Then I had some blood for say then stopped. I wish I could have proper period after going through such pain. It feels like period makes relax. But there isn't such thing during perimenapause. Both body & mind are in turmoil!

    My last cycle was a nightmare. I had a week and a half of period cramps off and on before I actually got my period. Period was very late.

    Hi jane, i am almost 48, i keep having period pains and spotting. I went 68 days with no period then a 5 day heavy period and i have spotted since for 28 days. I get period pains most days and like you anxiety through the roof. I get odd sharp pains too and end up googling and make myself worse. It is normal and i keep telling myself this but, i am going to make an appointment to see my GP if it goes on another week xx
