I am postmenopausal, it commenced when I was 45. After 7years I have started to bleed and am a little concerned. I am on HRT and currently have frozen shoulder and chronic pain so am on gabapentine also, so I am feeling weak, extreme sudden tiredness, struggling to sleep (pain related) have loose bowels and experiencing flushing.
I have a history of ectopic pregnancy and have been treated for pre cancerous cell at the cervix some eight years ago. I had four successful pregnancies, followed by sterilisation.
I was shocked when I began to bleed and although light it has lasted almost a week now and continues. I have a itch in the vulva on both sides and a slightly swollen stomach, however I have put on a little weight recently but am still only 9 stone so hardly overweight. I've delayed visiting the GP as I'm beginning to feel like a hypochondriac with several recent visits with my shoulder. Could it just be a period and nothing to worry about? Or is this not normal after this time scale?
