Second period after menopause

Posted , 10 users are following.

I just started my period again...first time was in September. I had blood tests done that showed I was menopausal a year ago. Next week I will have an endometrial biopsy and it is stressing me. Have any of you ladies had an endometrial biopsy? Cancer is my biggest fear right now.

    I had one previously. Mine was done right in the doctor's office. More stress was created by the unknown and until I got the all clear by the doctor, I tried to not dwell on it but it's tough as it's natural to worry.  Best I can say is try to keep yourself a bit busy and know that while they say we're technically in true menopausal state after one year of no periods, that's not etched in stone. It's true that some of us do have periods that will spontaneously start again without anything being wrong. Please try not to get overwhelmed.

    Hoping for the best outcome for you.

    Yes a long time ago because cells had shown up in a pap they are scary to think about but takes minutes to do and it's all done. You will do fine!!

    Yes I have easier said than done but try not to worry. Results generally don't take more than a week maybe a fortnight.
