Sorry if I haven't picked the correct board or forum to pose this question to. I 'think' I'm going through the start of or am already in the menopause. My periods for the last 2-3 years have been odd in as much as they will be regular but stop completely for a day or two around day 5 then recommence like a new period. I get PMT in the intervening day too so it's like my body forgot what it was doing and then starts afresh with a brand new period in the middle of my period! If that makes sense?
Randomly after the above 2+ years of oddness last month's period was perfectly normal, it ran for around 6 days with nothing to report. This month TOTALLY different...I came on at around the expected time, did the whole stop/start thing but this time now after 14 days (from the original start date) I am still losing a very light brown almost stringy discharge (no odor), and have slight cramps back and front but not quite menstrual cramps, just more like a tightening.
I am 51, I had a clear smear 18 months ago, I know that I have a fibroid(s), I don't use any contraception as my partner had a vasectomy years ago and our sex life is slow because he's much older.
Can anyone relate to this please?
