I am almost 50. Periods are lighter and longer however this

I am almost 50. Periods are lighter and longer however this month was a little shorter and a little heavier not much. It ended and a few days later I started spotting. Its been five days now. I called my doctor she said nothing to worry about in perimenopause. Also noticed a little more unwanted hair growth and hot flushes and flashes and night warmth sometimes. Just looking for a second opinion since I worry. I had a double period in December and last May I had spotting for three weeks. A little breast discomfort and stomach too but I think I'm nervous. Thanks

I'm 20 now, but I've never been able to have a normal

I'm 20 now, but I've never been able to have a normal period. I always get my period 3-4 times a year, and it's always crippling pain leaves me unable to do even basic tasks for several days. I tried the pill, but I got so depressed I had to be institutionalized. Since then, I've had an IUD put in, but I still get the cramps (with less bleeding). Also, the bleeding gets horrible whenever I'm stressed. Is any of this normal? If not, can you think of how I can fix it? Because my doctor says it's unusual, but she's not concerned about it.JA: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?Customer: No.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: Nothing comes to mind. I mean, I was abused when I was younger and it's been suggested I could have some damage down there from it. But she knows that.

I had a hysterectomy 3 years ago. Off and on I have had pink

I had a hysterectomy 3 years ago. Off and on I have had pink discharge. Once I see it I tend to continue to wipe and look for it. Sometimes inserting baby wipes or toilet tissue into my vagina. Been to the doctor many times. He says it's hormonal and wants me to use estrogen cream. I have used it on occasion. This morning it was there again and I have checked it all day by inserting wipes inside. And now it's turned to darker red blood spots. I have had abnormal paps after the hysterectomy which my doctor says is caused by hpv?JA: In general, how has your health been lately?Customer: See above?JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: Amxiety
