Post menopausal bleeding

Posted , 8 users are following.

I was on here last week asking about post menopausal bleeding which was spotting.

I am going up for a scan on Friday.

Could someone please help me with this new query I am getting bleeding which feels like a period

not so much pain but but the feeling and the bleeding is slightly more.

So frightened I cannot take much more of the anxiety and I just want to converse with someone that knows how I'm feeling.

    Hello Heather, i had the same exaxt thing happen to me back in october 2018. It lasted for about 2 1/2 months and nothing since thank god. i had endometrial hyperplasia. iwas suppose to get a biopsy done in Dec but was frightened by all the horror stories ao i opted to not have one. i had a endometeial ultrasound done and all that showed was a thick endo stripe about 11 centimeters she said. i started to diet amd eat clean and lost 20 pounds and i feel great....ad of now. i have to follow up with my pcp soon. i feel you on being frightened and in fear of the unknown. Just go get checked out. Btwall my lab work came back negative so i was happy about that. Before this started in oct i hadn't had a period since july 2015. So you can imagine my fearto see and feel like i was having a period. i was under extreme stress for months before this which i strongly feel it contributed to all this. Hope you get your answer and hope this helps. God bless. I thank god for this forum it truly helped me.****

      The thing that is worrying me is that I am very overweight and that seems to be a pre cursor for many cancers. I am getting the same feeling as a period you know slight pain in the lower stomach, didn't have that last week.

      Thanks for replying I have no female friends or relatives (my mum is worried sick, so don't want to worry her anymore) so the closest I get to talking to a sister is on here.

    Heather I had post bleeding almost 3 years of no period at all! I had to have the biopsies , ct scan , ultra sound and pelvic and paps plus cervic / uterus . I was 59 almost 60 ! Anyways they had me scared to DEATH especially this one male obgyn which I stop seeing after he poked holes in me a took pieces of the cervic he even called my house scaring the daylights out of me wanting to to have it all done at hospital and under anesthesiolgist and I am too scared to be pout to sleep I finally got rid of him and went through all the test again with the head female obgyn plus she did blood work too! Well I was shocked to hear that blood work actually showed that I wasn't post meno even though I went 3 years no period then after 3 years I had a periopd from you know where I had to go to ER I was conveinced was hemmorraging and that bleeding lasted more than 6 weeks. ALL my test was negative everything was 100% good! My obgyn head lady and excellent reviews and experience and knoweledge said that lots of times a egg or so will stay and not release until years later ! That 12 month trash that says you are meno then is ridiculous it should be like 3 to 5 years lol I think you will be fine! I know the fear and fright of waiting on results and the worry of the C word. I already have a serious panic and anxiety disorder and trust me I had no rest day or night from such paralzing fear ...But thank God everything was fine and yours will be too..text anytime you get worrying if you like i'm up till early morning and I'm Est . 2703192216

      Thanks for replying to me it was much appreciated.

      I don't know where you live but I live in Scotland and because of my depression and anxiety my phone is not very mobile lol ........ don't go out much which leaves me too much time to think about things.

      Thanks again Heather x

    Did you have what i would describe as period pain.

    Did you have your tests in Britain.

    I was told that they would tell you some things and

    probably send a biopsy if they need to and could

    you tell me what thickness of the lining is normal.

    Many Thanks for all your help.
