postmenopausal bleed

Posted , 4 users are following.

I'm 51 and not had a period for nearly 3 years. Last week I had all the symptoms leading up to a period and now I'm bleeding. My Dr examined me and said she couldn't see or feel anything wrong and thinks that I am just having a period. Do why have I now got to go for a scan. I'm so worried. Thanks for listening.

    Hi lynda 

    try not to worry..

    could be a number of reasons.. do you take HRT or any other things that may affect you..

    a scan is most important .. 

    a few ladies have had this happen post meno as i have seen their posts on here before..

    big hugs jay x

    Hello lynda. I think your doctor is just being cautious. I'm sure if she thought there was anything serious she would have referred you to a consultant. Normally it takes up to 6-8 weeks for a GP to receive a scan report so they tend not to request them if there are serious concerns, they refer to a hospital consultant first. If we can't reassure you, ring her or make an other appointment to discuss it with her. You could wait a few weeks before you get an appointment for the scan. You don't want to spend that time worrying unnecessarily.

      You're very lucky jayneejay. In my area that's certainly not the case. A gold star service, just as it should be. And allowed to take the photos home? It's only the pregnant women here that can do that

      Hi Matron

      i dont live in UK .. i am from UK though..

      here i pay to see my Gyno, have everything checked, even a 3D breast scan

      yes they give you all your results here, had a scan vaginally in Aug 

      he showed me my ovaries on screen. and uterine lining, told me i was post menopause as uterine wall thin and 4mm ( but may thin abit more) said my ovaries were non functioning no follicles ( post meno) 

      had smear, also all inside vaginal area checked and cervix, magnified and  checked all the cells close up too, pretty thorough ..

      then they give you your results and talk to you, and send you home with all the pictures 😳. ( i didnt frame them)  😀

      and all for 150€ .. 

      told me i had vaginal dryness and suggested Ovestin Estriol Cream or Ovules just for vaginal discomfort ... and how they work etc..

      i only use on occassion if feel discomfort ..

      we had the natural progesterone cream discussion and when i told him what happened to me.. he went on to say how dangerous it was .. and how it messes women up.. how it shouldnt be easy to buy like it is ..

      he was amazing 😀

      That's fantastic. I would pay for that sort of service. Trouble is with our NHS we do have to wait. We pay indirectly through our taxes as you will know.

      To many Chiefs and not enough Indians ,how often do we hear that in UK ,going down the tubes NHS ,old people on hospital trolleys for hours on end ,never right ,2014 ,shame I call it ,my aunt worked in Hsp ,everything had to be just so ,from patients to Hsp cleanliness  no bugs then. No nurses could wear uniform outside the Hsp at all .It makes sense to me .goodness knows where all it's going to end up ,rate it's going .

      You are right marlene. Managers are paid ridiculous salaries with pay rises annually and nurses get nothing. Bring back Matron who was strict but the wards were clean, patients didn't get infections and nurses nursed!!

      Times we now live in Jay ,same old ,same old hey .im next generation to your mum and dad more or less and it's scary what it's going to be like then as we both get older. Private health care ????  That's where it's heading ,I'd hate America's system ,money up front in most Hsp 's .Start making people entering UK ,pay for health care ,no handouts .health migration. We simply can't afford it .were not as GREAT ,as we once were .Streets not paved with GOLD ,never have been ,I get wound up seeing what this country's becoming ,2 World Wars and for what ,to end up like this ,all those men who died ,must shed tears in heaven .i would .

      There like the rotten bankers these NHS managers ,grabbing lot ,Do bad job ,hey they leave with a damn good pay off .all the same lot of them ,old days done a bad job ,you certainly didn't get a handsome payout ,all comes out of our taxes ,look at that payout ,what that could go towards inside a Hsp,that's needed. Gauling thing ,they think they deserve it ,for wasting tax payers money .plenty service men living on streets ,but those spongers live in nice houses thanks to us .nice and warm this winter .

        Nurses are payed a pittance ,long hours .again winds me up . Yes matrons were strict ,they ran Hsp ,even Drs use to jump to her tune .,about time we went back to those days in my view ,sooner the better .cleaners spent long time cleaning,then they handed that out to private sector. So we've got what we've got  get what you pay for ,grubby Hsp's ,terrible .
