stop this bleeding!
Hi to all,
I am fast approaching fifty and have had the usual signs and symptoms of perimenopause. But this is just too much. I have been bleeding for 19 days as of today and no end in sight. Here in Canada we have a shortage of doctors and that means many of us women have to utilize drop in clinics. Needless to say this is not the best option as you rarely see the same doctor twice and are rushed in and out in minutes. Follow up care...forget it.I really don't want to waste four or five hours of waiting to see someone who will send me home with a " yes, this is perimenopause and what you can expect'. So ladies, in your experience , is this long( and still bright red blood)period that unusual or par for the course? I am so fed up and dreading this happening from now on( that is if I don't bleed to death in the meantime). Really really mad about the fact that husband and I have a trip planned to the Caribbean in February and if this happens there I will be furious. Can't you just see that little white string hanging out of the bathing suit....argghhhh, Not to mention no chance for romance! Thanks for any and all replys.
