How Long Does Perimenopause Usually Last
How long can spotting last during perimenopause and is it normal? I have had 3 colposcapies in the last 10 years and they have all been normal.
Spotting @ 55: Perimenopause can cause lightened or absent periods with spotting. However, endometrial cancer also presents in the same way. Colposcopies are not the prime way to assess the endometrium as it looks at the endocervical canal and cervix itself and not the endometrium. An endometrial biopsy will tell you and your MD much more about why you are spotting if this is worrisome. ...Read more

Could it have been an ovarian cyst? 47 yo female, in perimenopause. Been experiencing dull pressue in left lower abdomen for about a week, beginning right after ending a period. Last evening, experienced a small amount of pink (blood) upon wiping after u
Yes, : Yes, that could very well be an ovarian cyst. Cysts often cause pressure, then a sudden pain. Taking advil (ibuprofen) can often help. They usually resolve on their own. If there is any chance of pregnancy, then the patient should take a pregnancy test to rule out other causes. Be sure and tell your doctor about your symptoms or see them earlier if your symptoms worsen. Cysts are also more common during peri-menopause. ...Read more

Anatomic causes exist as well such as uterine polyps, uterine fibroids and endometrial hyperplasia. An endometrial biopsy along with a pelvic ultrasound are useful diagnostic tools. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Im currently on CD62. Usually my cycle is 60. I experienced small spotting last night, but no period as per normal. Im very worried. Perimenopause?
Unlikely: Your cycles are abnormally long at 60 days and I think someone should look into that but you are very young for this to be perimenopause at 28. The perimenopause is usually the 5 years before and the 5 years after your last period (when you run out of eggs). Menopause before age 40 is considered premature and is abnormal. Check a pregnancy test and see a doctor to help explain the long cycles. ...Read more
FM 50,perimenopause , from last two days i get spells of coldness in my both calf muscles, no pain,numbness,tingling. So what to do? Thanks
Cold Calves: Lower extremity coldness can be due to many conditions, too numerous to discuss here. With hormonal fluctuations, as a woman approaches menopause, there may be a phenomenon of superficial vascular hyper-reactivity. Dilation is often described by many women as hot flashes, dizziness, sweating, etc. If vessels constrict, blood flow decreases, the skin will cool, hence the cold limbs. ...Read more
