I have a combination of pms-type symptoms, but I'm 53 and post-menopause - no period for 3 years.
It's not unbearable but (1) is this normal and (2) what could be the cause? The symptoms are both breasts & nipples generally sore (almost as if my milk had come in) and (after 3 years dryness) vag discharge, the stretchy ovulation kind. Been going on for week-10 days. Could the cause be ovarian?
Surely I can't be ovulating 3 years post menopause!
I know it's been a while since you posted. I was wondering how you were. Did your symptoms go away? I'm 54-no periods for 2 yrs. My hot flashes suddenly stopped and my nipples and breast became sore. My abdomen bloated to where I could'nt wear my jeans and having moisture again. Intercourse no longer hurts. 4 weeks later bloating has gone away but abdomen has grown. Breast are better but a little tender. Still have the vaginal moisture. Very strange.
I'm 52, I went one year and no cycle and then boom had a cycle, so had a biopsy, that said everything is fine, and uterus has atrophied, meaning menopause. As of May 2016, it will be a year again. But by monthly symptoms, I used to have are ten times worse. I've always had breast tenderness, but now, omgosh, and they hurt under my arms too, I had one breast leaking a pale yellow fluid around cycle time. Mammo was fine, now the other one is doing it. I've waited for menopause because I had polycyctic ovarian syndrome, so such a mess all my life with my period. Guess it's going to be that way for menopause. But during searching I've seen that those kind of symptoms can list into your 60's and 70's! Good grief
