Painful periods, mega clotting & spotting in between
I will be 51 in 3 months and lately my periods are longer (5-6 days instead of the 3-4 days before) and the pain lasts for 3 days instead of the 1 day before. Also, I have noticed a lot of clotting recently. And to add to that, I am spotting (brownish and gooey) in between my periods. I have an appointment with the gyn. in 1 month. I had to cancel my last appointment because I had my period at the time.
Does anyone else have these symptoms? Is this just pre-menopause? Is it possible that this will last for months or even years? I am one of those women who would welcome menopause tomorrow. Also, I had my tubes tied almost 19 years ago, something I would never recommend to anyone to do.
