Hello. I'm wondering if anyone can put my mind at rest a little, please?
I'm 50, have not had a period for 15 months but started bleeding 3 days ago which started off light and is getting heavier. I had my usual signs of an oncoming period before the bleeding started so I wasn't too alarmed. I went to my GP yesterday who is sending me for a scan next week. However, what I'm worried about (particularly as my mum had womb cancer when she was 57) is that the GP said:
"Sometimes there can be a bit of spotting after 12 months of no periods but it's very unusual for it to last for days."
This has really worried me. Has anyone else had more than just the odd bit of spotting, more like a proper period, once periods have stopped for over 12 months, but tests were all ok?
I had a smear last Summer and also an internal scan for another issue which all came back ok. GP said it was last Summer so we need to do a scan again.
