Customer Question
Hi I've been in...

Hi I've been in what I'm pretty sure is menopause for a little over a year with no period with all the side effects including hot flashes very little sleep but almost 3 full weeks now I have had a very heavy period with a lot of cramping and a very heavy flow that doesn't seem to be stopping and is taking quite a toll on me I'm very tired and grumpy any answers by chance

Doctor's Assistant: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?

I am alot of cramping and it's been over a year since I've had one I'm 51 years it just worries me because no signs it was coming on and very heavy and clotty

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Dear,

Thanks for staying online. I am posting my answer below-

It is is not normal to have sudden heavy bleeding after one year of absence of periods. This should be further evaluated by your Gynecologist.

Possible reasons for such bleeding are-

-Hormone problems,

-Atrophy of the vagina,

-Polyps (small growths) in the uterus or on the cervix,

-Hyperplasia (enlarged cells) of the lining of the uterus,

-Ovarian tumor.

You will be requiring pelvic examination, hormone blood tests along with a vaginal ultrasound scan for evaluation of cause.

If this is related with cervical polyps, then you may need to have them removed. For hormone imbalance you would be prescribed with oral medications and injections.

The line of treatment would be advised according to the cause.

Please see your Gynecologist and get it clinically evaluated.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
