User rating for this question
Hi, This question is related to my mom and wanted few clarification. She is 49 and for initial (It append in July 2013) 4 months did not had her periods but after that when she had it resulted in very excessive loss of blood and Biopsy was conducted and report showed as "cystic glandular hyperplasia with progesterone and induced stromal". With Endometrium thickness of 18mm. D & C was conducted and she again did not had her periods for 6 more months after D & C. (Last month)Now she had her periods and again resulted in Loss of excessive blood. When a scanning was done Endometrium thickness was 10mm so doctor suggested her to take "Regulate" and told her that these are menopause symptoms (Its been a month since she started taking the medicine). Again she had her periods 3 days back and resulted in excessive bleeding. If she takes medicine it comes under control. We are little worried Need help and second opinion on this Regards XXXX

Brief Answer: peri-menopause Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Your mother is indeed in the peri-menopausal age group. It is commonly seen during this time, the kind of heavy bleeding your mother is experiencing. Now, the bleeding will be irregular for a year or two, before it stops completely and she achieves menopause. Medicine will regulate the bleeding but since she is taking hormonal medicine, bleeding willl resume if she stops taking it. My suggestion would be to take Tab Pause 500mg thrice a day during heavy bleeding. Take this during the bleeding and stop if the bleeding stops. Try this for a few days. This isnt a hormone medicine and will only control the bleeding. If it doesnt control the bleeding, she can revert back to progestrone/regestrone but it has to be taken cyclically. Cycles may be irregular for several months before complete cessation. The last option, of course, would be surgery/ablation.
