Is there any relation to menopause and sore nipples? Last September I was told that I was menopausal and am currently am not taking any hormones, but have noticed that for the past four or five days my nipples have been sore to the touch. Is this normal?View Thread
To start I will give you a little bit of history: I am 53 years old, was on the birth control pill for until I I had my 46 birthday. I was paranoid that I would become pregnant so I went back on the birth control pill. While I am taking the birth control pill, my menstruation stops. I went to my gyn after my 53rd birthday, and blood work was taken and my hormone levels came back with results indicating that I am "menopausal if not fully menopausal". I stopped taking the birth control pill. I have had no periods. My husband and I are sexually active and have not used any form of birth control since stopping the pill. I have noticed that on a few occasions that I notice a slight pink discharge after intercourse. I only notice the discharge immediately after intercourse. Is this something that I need to call my doctor about?View Thread
Thank you doctor. I am up to date on my pap smears. My last was this past September when the doctor did the blood work. In the last 20 years of being on the birth control pill I had no periods whatsoever with the exception of when I went off the pill when I turned 46. The periods returned to normal. I went back on the pill when I turned 48 and again my periods ceased. The bleeding that I had noticed after intercourse was only slight pink and it was only on the tissue. That was it. No spotting continued. I do not have vaginal dryness at this time. I appreciate your advice and I will consult my doctor if you think I should. Thanks.View Thread
