Hello, I'm 48 and being driven crazy by some scary symptoms. My periods have been all over the place for about five or six years, very heavy, very light, brown spotting, mid-cycle mini period, I'm sure you get the picture. However, I have just taken vitamins and tried to carry on as we all do. For the past couple of months however, I have suffered from repeated infections in the intimate area, with repeated courses of antibiotics which never worked for long, plus my periods are ridiculous, for example just had four days of spotting followed by five days heavy, one day clear and ovulation, now bleeding again. In the midst of all this I went to A&E with bad pelvic pain and more soreness down below. Stayed in hospital for a few days, a CT scan came back clear, I am booked in for more tests under anaesthetic in a few weeks, absolutely terrified. My anxiety has reached uncontrollable levels, been prescribed Setraline, I am also constipated and bloated. I just want to avoid everyone and sob as I am so scared and out of control. Please anyone, does this sound familiar at all?
