Q & A

I have been going through hot flashes and all that good stuff for many years,probably about 8 years or so.. now, I have not had a period in 14 months and thought FINALLY....no more periods...then 4 days ago I started heavy bleeding just like a period!  I was shocked.  Is this a normal thing to happen?? I am 49 years old.

    • My sister is 55 and she has a period once a year. It’s the strangest thing. She’ll get a really bad episode of PMS and then the bleeding starts. She thought she was done with periods around age 49 too.

      I’m 48 and I’m going on 7 months without a period. I wonder if this will happen with me too.

      It wouldn’t hurt to run it past your doctor though for his/her opinion

    • I was just 50 this June.  Never missed a period.  Finally (smirk) missed one this November.  I was so excited thinking maybe finally Im on my way.  Then 12/3, some bleeding but not a flow. I have no idea what to expect and when.  Im hoping that was my last one!! I tend to think not but hey, positive thinking..LOL

      xoxo

    • I had a similuar experience but Not 8 years. My periods were never heavy and lasted 3-4 days then I mised a period and thought like Doreen, oh good. NOT started the next month VERY heavy like I could not leave the house, had it for 2 weeks stopped one week then started back in a week heavy, this went on for 3 months. Finally it has been almost a year my friend had not returned (got my fingers eyes arms crossed)And the mood swings, once a month I wanted to kill someone, I am not like that. I am finally feeling normal.

    • I remember having a normal cycle up until I was around 49, then I started skipping months. I kept track of them anyway. Then one year around Christmas I got a very strange one that lasted like 10 days (normally 5 to 6 days.). Then January came and went with no action, then February came with another odd 7 day cycle, with all sorts of colors I was not used to seeing. Then that was it. I counted the months and last February made it a year. I wanted to have a Victoria’s Secret party where I would buy all new and nice underwear, and throw out those special undies I used during those days. Finally Free! Well ... until those blasted hot flashes started. I call them meltdowns for a reason. Glad I don’t wear makeup!

    • Hello Ladies
      I also have have the same problem. 48 months 3day 2hr and 33 min without a period. It is wonderful. I started a tampon fund now I have lots of money in the account for something special just for me.
      I woke up three days ago to bleeding. Not happy I don’t ever what to go into my “Tampon fund”
      I am on my way to the doctor today to see what the problem is better to be safe then sorry. I am thinking it is just a cysts or something. I will keep you posted
