At 54 it's been over 2 years since I had my last proper period, which was the most awful, heavy, painful period I've ever had - this came 11 months after the previous period. Apart from that I just sailed through the menopause without any problems at all, as my periods just became more and more erratic until they just tailed off, finishing with the one from hell! I had a smear 5 weeks ago (for which I still haven't got the results) and happened to mention that in the intervening 2 years and 3 months since that last period I've had 3 episodes of spotting. The period was in Oct 14, then in May 15 I had a week of spotting, as if a period was starting but it didn't. In April 16 I had one day of light brown spotting, then in Sept 16 I had literally a few pale pink spots which lasted a couple of hours, and that was it! I wasn't at all concerned but the GP sent me for an ultrasound which was today. They couldn't find the endometrium very well, so gave me a transvaginal ultrasound (for anybody else reading this, it's absolutely nothing to worry about, way better than a smear and I was so relaxed I could have fallen asleep [cheesygrin] ). The endometrium was found to be thickened...apparently the guidlines say that anything over 3mm should be investigated, and mine is 6. Now I am to be referred to a gynacologist..obviously I'm concerned but is it possible that it's actually nothing at all? Has anyone else been in this situation?
Thank you, Louise x
