Customer Question
I'm a 64 year...

I'm a 64 year woman that has never had one year w/o a period. For the past 2 weeks I've had spotting and bleeding. Recent tests revealed no signs of cancer. Are there any procedures to stop the bleeding apart from a hysterectomy.

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

This month I had the regular pre menstrual symptoms-tender breasts, moody, bloating etc. That passed but the bleeding hasn't stopped.

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

Before the spotting began, how regularly or irregularly did you get your periods?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Frequency has been slowly increasing but nothing regular. Last year it occurred 3-4 times. Before that it was about once a year.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 1 month ago

So there is an option to be on birth control pills which I know isn't ideal. You can consider an IUD or a nuvaring instead.

Otherwise, yes, a hysterectomy has to be considered. I prefer the former but sometimes there is no other way to stop the spotting.

Please let me know if you have any other questions that I can expand on.

Otherwise I hope I provided you with a 5-star service.

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.
