It has now been about 11 months since my last period- I am 54. During the last year I have still have episodes when I feel like I am trying to ovulate, and will have characteristic stringy clear egg white type mucus that was always part of my cycle for a few days intermittently.
Is this normal? No bleeding at all but just still feel as if I have periods of high oestrogen which I assume is stimulating the cervical mucus. Anyone else have this?
When should I expect things to dry up completely and should I be happy that I have not yet experienced atrophy or dryness? Do we often have more secretions before less in menopause?View Thread
I am 52 and a half and have had irregular cycles for just over two years. 20-44 days between periods with duration of 4 to 16 days of bleeding. short bleed- short wait long bleed- long wait.
This month I am still bleeding but very lightly on day 16. I know that I was advised here that this is normal in peri, and that i could ask for progesterone to regulate the cycles especially the prolonged bleeding. I was wondering if any natural remedies would have the same affect as I don't really want to go down the hormonal route if I can avoid it.
Finally is there any risk of endometrial cancer being as I do bleed for long periods when my cycle is delayed?- or is this just a very unlikely possibility as I have no risk factors such as obesity or diabetes.
I just want to deal with this naturally, but get just a bit freaked out mentally on day 16 of my period after a forty day wait that used to be like clockwork! Is it likely that I may bleed for another week then maybe skip a period altogether, and how many days is it normal to bleed in this peri time- is mine within normal expected parameters?View Thread
I am almost 53 and having irregular periods. Some come after 46 days, some after only 20, some last for only 5 days and some in excess of 2 weeks. The latest in the saga is a period that started only 14 days after the previous one but it is very light -almost tarry and dark with minimal flow. Would this once again be lack of progesterone? I have all the other menopause symptoms going on- night sweats etc.
I am hoping to last without HRT so just wondering if anyone else has this pattern of bleeding and if the expert could advise.View Thread
Just wondering how you are doing? I have a similar bleeding pattern to yours and I am almost 53. I have had periods ranging from 46 days between to only 14 and periods lasting from 5 days to 3 weeks but not heavy. Can't wait for the end as this is all new territory!View Thread
