I didn't have a period for a year and guess what it returned May 9th 2011. I bled for a week a normal flow. I thought i reached that plateau, but apparently i didn't. My endocronologist confirmed with my FSH 51.9 and my gyn didn't want to give me another depo shot because he said i didn't need because I won't get pregnant. so what gives?
I'm 50 years old, menopause and haven't had my period for 1 year. I was told that if i don't have a period for a whole year then i've reached that stage, no more periods. but recently my breasts have been tender and i've been having cramps. On Monday, May 9th i got my period. I've had my last depo shot on April 2010. what gives?
I'm 50 years and was told i'm in menopause. I haven't had my period for 1 whole year. recently my breasts were sore and tender and i've been having cramps. On Monday, May 9th, i got my period. I was told that when you don't get your period for a whole year, you've definitely reached that stage. On April 2010 was my last depo shot since my gyn dr. told me no more because of my age. so is it menopause, or is it the depo shot? I'm confusedView Thread
