Hi - I have already posted today with some anxiety about my changing periods that are now irregular and definately different in quality.
Since January my periods have not been at the regular 25/26 day intervals. I have a few that are around that length 24. 27. 22 and then a gap to 39 followed by a short one of 16 days. Then a few again around 23. 22. 26 and then another long gap 37 and a short one of 17 days. So I guess there is a pattern there.............sort of
The bleeding is horrible, it isn't heavy as such, but it just feels like it's out of control - the periods don't slowly start and peak and peter out as they have all my life. They arrive and are full on (more watery) and then stop. It feels as though it is a lot of bleeding but it's more like a sense of evacuation (sorry for TMI) and I get awful water retention and feel like I go down a dress size within a day of starting my period.
I am now worrying that these type of bleeds can lead to thickened lining and hyperplasia that needs treating with progesterone. How do you know if that is happening if the NHS website says irregular bleeding is OK
Anyone have any experience with this - I do not like medical procedures and don't want to avoid taking care but also dont want to worry.
Aaarrgh I am guessing the only answer is ask the GP - but I am not that comfy with that either (don't know why I am so health anxious right now)
