Question: Hi my name is XXXXXXX I am 53 years old and have been post menopausal for 4 years. Over the past month I have had some strange occurances happen and it all came to a head this week when I began bleeding on Monday. It was very light pink but no matter scared me. I went to my GYN on Tuesday where he did an endo biopsy. He said the results would take about a week maybe a little less. I have not heard yet so of course it being friday evening I know I have to wait atleast another two days before I start to wonder if he is going to call me. What I wanted to say was that about three weeks prior to my bleeding again I was diagnosed with a UTI infection. urine tests showed wbc and so I went on an antibiotic. My symptoms of the infection were frequent urination
in my stomach. I also felt awful. After a few days on antibiotic I noticed a clear almost raw egg white type of vaginal discharge
. I had not seen that since I was still getting my periods years before. Then I started to have sore breasts again jsut like when I would ovulate and then this continued with terrible emotional outburst another PMS symptom from my past. All of those symptoms disappeared once I began to bleed this week. My doctor said that there is no reason for my periods to have stopped for four years other then menopause
however I was never tested for hormone leves to confirm it was menopause. I suppose my questions are: 1) could something other than menopause put a temporary stop to my period 2) Why would I have PMS symptoms if it was just bleeding 3) why would all of my menopause symptoms such as dry skin
, vaginal dryness
, low libido, hot flashes, night sweats
all go away over the past couple of weeks? I am perplexed and hoping things turn out ok.
I wanted to also add that I have not stopped bleeding. It went from light pink on Monday which is only on the toilet paper to a brighter red since. Over the past couple days it has begun to lighten up. I have not bled excessively and not enough to even change a pad during the day. It is merely spotting on the pad and bleeding mostly when I wipe after urinating. Sometimes there is some blood in the toilet bowel.
