I got my period twice in one cycle. I had a rather light one

I got my period twice in one cycle. I had a rather light one about 2 weeks ago. Then I got it again this past Sunday. It started out dark red. I'm 47 years old and had a normal Pap smear November 2015. I was bleeding heavily so my ObGyn ordered an internal and external unltasound. It came back normal except for 3 fibroids. My period has still been every 28 days until recently. I know I was anemic and underweight, and I ate extra over the holidays and gained some weight. Also I rarely drink but in the past if my period was late I would indulge in alcohol and it would start my period, and I had a rare glass of champagne on New Year's. on the ultrasound, they said they couldn't see one of my ovaries. So my question/s are: Does this mean they have no idea if that ovary is normal? Do I need another Pap smear? I don't have insurance until my work season begins again so I'd hope to figure this out without more tests. Thanks

I was diagnosed with lichen sclerosis 4 years ago and it is

I was diagnosed with lichen sclerosis 4 years ago and it is controlled with daily application of Eucerin. I am post-menopausal and do not use estrogen due to high risk factors for cancer. I had unexplained infertility and my two boys are adopted. Otherwise, I am in great shape. My only medications are a multi-vitamin, calcium, aspirin for arthritis in my neck and astelin nasal spray for seasonal allergies. The lichens never goes away, but does not bother me as I am not sexually active. My vaginal opening has shrunk so much that my doctor said that she may not be able to get a pap smear next year. What are the chances that this will become cancerous? Do I need to schedule regular biopsies? I have a general practitioner who sent me to a specialist for the initial diagnosis, but I have not been back to her. What are the chances that it will spread to other areas?JA: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?Customer: 4 years. No numbness or tingling. Sometimes burning, but goes away with the moisturizing.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: I had endometriosis which was removed while I was doing fertility treatments 30 years ago, but otherwise, I am very healthy and up to date on all screenings such as pap smears and colonoscopies. I am 58 years old.
