First time on this site. Found it whilst researching for a doctors appointment I had this morning. I have been referred for an ultra sound scan. I started the menopause two years ago when I was 47 and until a year ago all was ok apart from sweats and vile mood swings. Those have now subsided but periods are every month as normal and sometimes extra periods pop into the equation so I end up having two. Since august this year they have increased. And they last for ever and are heavy. I don't suffer from period pain never have but I do get back ache. So with a bit of luck I should have a result of what is going on within the next month.
