... :wave: Hi ladies,
Caring12, I was just wondering who "they" are that you mentioned in your post. Was it a pcp, gyno or other? Nevertheless with the cysts, since they didn't want to remove them, they obviously don't find them a threat. This is very positive! But from what I've read about cevical dysplasia, most cases of cevical dysplasia remain stable, or are eliminated by the... (26 replies)

Hi Karen, Fayan - This is just an update for my fellow peri menopausers - it's day 15 of my cycle, had no spotting on day 13 but sure did start on day 14.5 ( have started counting minutes & seconds ).

I can relate with you too! For myself, this pink discharge came, when my Coumadin's (an anti-blood clotting med) INR level became too high, making my blood dangerously thin. It eventually turned into a very light period (which I'm now experiencing; is more like spotting). I had missed 2 months periods prior to this. Was hoping it'd be... (26 replies)
