I am 45 years old, have problems with bleeding between periods. I just had a regular period last week and now im bleeding again. Its not heavy, its a light pink/red color. I have brown discharge around the time of ovulation and have pain in the lower right side around the inside of the leg. What is that? Please help me understand whats going on with my body.
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Changes in bleeding pattern and pain suggest possibility of serious issues like endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, cervical cancer, PID or pre-menopausal changes in your body. After a careful evaluation with examination and further investigations exact cause can be made out. Treatment would be based on your test results. Do not delay your visit to your gynecologist.
