I had had no period for five months and am now on my second period this month. It is like my old ones, heavy with dragging lower back and abdominal pain. I recently had a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound due to a painful lump which proved to be an enlarged duct. Are these things related somehow? This period is at five days and counting. The first one I had this month lasted around five days.View Thread
Thank you for you reply. I had been on a low dose pill for a few years due to heavy periods, but stopped last summer to see where I was re: menopause. I still have a prescription but should probably see a doctor first before going back on it right?View Thread
