Please I need help. I am 51 years old and haven't had period since January 2011. I started spotting about 6 days ago. It has gotten to the point where I have to wear a pad now. It is not heavy bleeding at all. It is not light bleeding. It is about medium. I can use just 2 pads a day. Today I have started a pain in my lower right part of my stomach. I am assuming it is my ovaries. It is a sharp dull ache. I don't have insurance and don't work. I have been told by several people to go to the OBGYN but like I said I don't have insurance. I am thinking I am going to have to bite the bullet and do something. I wanted to know if this is normal or really something I should be concerned about. My husband is freaking out about it. I don't have any friends to ask about this because they are not going through menopause yet and my mom isn't here anymore to ask her. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank youView Thread
