I have a history of prolonged period since Oct 2005 (6 days period & 3 days spotting) on a 28 to 30 day cycle. I did my repeated papsmear in June this year & it was normal coz I had ASCUS reading in Dec 2005. Doctor ordered D&C & hyperescopy but I was reluctant to go & I have cancelled it few times. I did D&C 3 years ago due to bleeding in between but the result was normal (hormonal changes). My last month's period was on 10.10.2006 & it lasted 6 days with 2 days spotting (8 days together). Then 2 days later, when I wipe with tissue after pee, it has a very thin blood discharge only once & I didn't bother.
This month, my period came earlier on the 25th day cycle. It started with some spotting on 3.11.2006 & then 4.11.2006 only my exact period & it lasted for 6 days with 2 days spotting as well. Then on the 15.11.2006, when I wipe with tissue after pee, it has a very thin blood discharge with mucus only once & then on 17.11.2006 the discharge came with a patch of blood streaked with mucus vaginal discharge. I thought its my ovulation. I went to my gynae, he did an U/S scan & checked my cervix with spectrum to see whether any cervical polyps. The U/S was normal & no cervical polyps but he found a folicle & he said its not my ovulation time yet & he said sometimes it happen with blood discharge, I didn't know what he meant. I also have PCOS (not overweight).I still have to do D&C and hyperescopy maybe next week coz i'm not well now (with bad cough & sore throat). Has anyone experience this? Could it be the sign of ovulation? TQ & appreciate it.
I have had prolonged periods for years. Mine last 9-12 days. Heavy bleeding with flooding the first 2-4 days, then lighter, then spotting for a few days. Sometimes I spot a few days before the heavy stuff as well. My periods in the past 2 years range from 18 days to 60 days.
I have ovarian cysts and fibroids in my uterus....in addition to this I am 43 years old and suspect that all of the changes in my ovaries, uterus and my periods are signs that I am in peri-menopause. It may be a little earlier than most women but in my family my grandmother, mother and 2 sisters have all gone through menopause in their mid 30's and early 40's.
It sounds like you are going through some hormone changes. I don't know that much about pcos but maybe that has something to do with. I'm not much help, just have experienced the same thing with my periods
