Is this Normal?

patticakes-2008June 28, 2008

Just found this forum and it sounds like a great place to post.

Here's the story..

I have gone 11 months without a period and then spotting, another 5 months go by spotting again.. Then after 6 months more spotting but this time it's lasting for over 2 weeks. I had breast tenderness, etc just before.. Is this something I should be worried about.. Or does this sound normal? I'm experiencing menopausal emotions, so be gentle with your answers. LOL

Hi Patticakes,
Yes it's very normal, and depending on your age, it lasts for about 5 to 7 years, and I hate to be the bearer of bad news but, unfortunately, it only gets worse.I'm also going through menopause, I'm 52 and I feel like I'm possesed, horrible mood swings, irritability, just want to be left alone, but read on, it seems like alot of Women are experiencing this, so, this is a very good website. I would also say to get on herbs, like black cohoash, evening primrose oil, and some good vitamins, omega threes, vitamin C, maybe even Sam-E, don't worry it will eventually be over and then you'll feel like your old self, if your in a relationship,or married, you need to have him read about what your going through, because if he doesn't, there's no way he'll understand at all, Good Luck and God Bless you, earthygal52.
