I have a strange situation and wonder if anyone could offer advice or opinions.
Firstly, I'm 55, on HRT for 5 - 6 years and all seemed to be going well. Then, at the end of December I began to bleed - period type bleeding with the old familiar lower abdomen pain but not anything as heavy as my period used to be. It went on for two weeks to the day.
I went to the Doctor in the early stages of bleeding, who sent me for an abdominal and internal ultrasound that showed thickening of the endometrial lining. So I was referred further for a biopsy.
Over last weekend I began to have lower abdominal pain again (just a little over a month after it began last time).
I had the biopsy on Monday and, as is normal, I had the usual cramping and light bleeding afterwards. This stopped by Tuesday afternoon completely, but my legs felt really tired and I was very emotional but put it down to the fact that the biopsy was over and I am now waiting for results.
Then, to my amazement, when I got up this morning (Wednesday) I had period type bleeding again! It's heavier, has clots (sorry!) and I have a period type pain in my lower abdomen.
I honestly don't know what is going on. It can't be a period as I couldn't have ovulated at 55 and on HRT for so long??!!
I am due to go back for my biopsy results in 3 weeks time and, while I thought about it, I didn't call my gyneacology office today as I thought it best to wait to see what happens.
But I'm baffled and worried and this site is like a lifeline as you get to hear from other women who may have experienced similar things. Can anyone help?
