I can’t say one way or the other whether what you’re experiencing is menopause-related, BUT, I thought I’d put my $0.02 regardless.  Have you considered a hysterectomy?  I had an almost life-long history of irregular periods, and multiple trips to the GYN.  Two years ago, she ordered an ultrasound, which showed uterine cysts, and she suggested a hysterectomy.  It was the best course of action for me/us, as we both had grown children, and had no interest in having any more.  It was an outpatient procedure, completely vaginal, and I was up and about after the anesthetic wore off.  The day after, I hopped in the car, and rode more than eight hours with FI to Canada.  She left my ovaries (TG) and I have never, ever, been sorry that I made the decision.

@NurseMandie:  I don’t know if you are going through menopause or not.  However I can relate to your frustration with having your period be anything but regular.

I am a little older than you are.  I am 43, and I am experiencing bleeding of some sort every two weeks.  I agree with PP see if you can get a hsyterectomy done.  I am trying to get in to the dr to have an exam done.  But so far everytime I have an appointment….the bleeding starts and I have to keep rescheduling.  My plan is to beg for a hysterctomy.  I am so sick of not knowing what my cycle is, and when it will be coming back.  I just know that when it comes I fell terrible.  Severe cramping and bloating, very heavy bleeding, severe headaches.

If you feel there is a problem, then it should be checked out.  Don’t feel like you are a hypochandriac.  You know your bocy.  And if something doesn’t feel right.  Then it needs to be checked.
