I am now 50, and am not sure if the symptoms I'm experiencing are menopausal and normal.
I had a period back in August, 2012, then didn't have one for 4 months. In December, I got
what seems to be a period, with far less bleeding than I've normally had in the past. I have
had constant very light bleeding for 9 days straight now, and am wondering if this is normal
to have this continuous bleeding for so long. I never experienced any common symptoms of
menopause, like hot flashes, mood swings, etc. Could this still be menopausal, or is this
constant bleeding a concern?
I cannot tell you what you are experiencing, but in my patients when they are approaching menopause they will experience similar symptoms. It is very common to miss several months of periods and then rebleed--which can be either very heavy or very light.
Obviously, only a consult & exam with your own physician can tell you what your symptoms represent.
