... I am 72 - I am waiting for a D & C right now. At my yearly exam I explained my bottom felt 'heavy' and I had pain in my back, groin and pelvic area. I had no bleeding, discharge at all - just the heavy feeling and related pains. After ultrasound (showed thick lining and fibroids), CT scan (normal) and a biopsy (negative) I was told I did not have Cancer. D & C is in Nov... (27 replies)
... I just wanted to say that I had dx. of endometriosis for years and had so much abdominal pain that after I had the hysterectomy that it was such a relief. ... (27 replies)
... I think it's true what you are saying about having your tubes tied and having more perimenopause symptoms. I was just reading about that in "The Wisdom of Menopause" by Christianne Northup, MD. There is a hormone interruption when the pathway from the ovaries to the uterus is stopped when the tubes are tied. ... (27 replies)

... After I had the ablation I had spotting and cramping but it didn't last long. I think it's strange that you are bleeding. I understand an ablation is where they caurterize the uterus, which reduces the blood vessels. You should feel the difference quick (or at least that is what I thought) and should not be bleeding. After my ablation I had super light periods. Mine never... (27 replies)
... Reba73 - Thanks for responding. I am definately perimenopausal. I almost think having my tubes tied and then having the ablation sent me there early then expected. I never had bleeding or inconsistent periods before. Maybe turning 40 (2 years ago) really made a difference. I can't imagine going through this for another 10 years. I was taking 10 mg of lexapro but I... (27 replies)
... if your mood swings, anxiety, migraines etc. could be due to perimenopause symptoms, I don't know much about not producing progesterone and I don't know why the lining would grow back but I guess it can. I don't blame you for wanting to be happy again and have your old body back. ... (27 replies)
... My hormones checked out ok. I am 47 years of age and not even close to menopause yet according to the blood work. I just wish this bleeding would stoppppp! Let us know what you find out...... ... (27 replies)
... ns, insomnia, and sleepiness after periods. The list goes on. My hormones were checked and I am not producing any progesterone. I also had a ultrasound and my lining was a little thick with fluids. My OBGYN put me on progresterone pills for 12 days each month starting again once I start my period. ... (27 replies)
... C yesterday, no pain and slight bleeding so I am happy. They took pictures of my uterus and the doctor removed a polyp which he sas. Waiting for the results from the pathologist, the nurse said it could take about 3 days. ... (27 replies)

... Absolutely have the procedure. You may catch something before it is too late. I had a sonogram and it showed abnormal growths in my uterus. It was biopsied and cancerous. Not that you should fear such a diagnosis, but your doctor is being proactive and that is commendable. (27 replies)
... yesterday. I would love to just go soak in a hot bath but no bath. UGH Just showers at this point. When my doctor was doing all the test to see possible causes of the bleeding, she checked my thyroid right off. And my hormone levels. I do think thyroid issues can cause bleeding issues. ...

... not under heavy anethesia which I was happy about as well. Takes so long to recover and start feeling yourself when put under heavy anesthisia.I was not in lots of pain right after I woke up. I started feeling a bit crampy about an hour after I was awake. The nurse gave me pain medication before I left to go home. ... (27 replies)
... I am one of these lucky women that never had problems with periods, they were regular, not heavy, no cramps for years so I guess I shouldn't complain. ... (27 replies)
... You are welcome Reba.........I know you must be scared as I am, too. Did you have a biopsy done? I did have a biopsy and it came back ok....but seems I read somewhere that the biopsy is done from a couple of snips of the endometrial lining and maybe the snips the docs get doesn't necessarily get the area <of cancer cells>? Maybe I am just a worry wart? LOL I will be glad... (27 replies)
... Please let us know how it goes for you. My doc wants me to schedule a Hysterscopy and ablation do to heavy periods and thickening of the endometrium. I did have a biopsy of the endo and it came back fine. I am a little nervous to have the other procedures done. ... (27 replies)
