|Hi from the UK!
I'm 52 and hadn't had a period for 16 months until yesterday. It's quite light and I have cramps in my abdomen. This is the second time I have had something similar except on the previous occasion I only went 10 months without a bleed, then had a few periods as normal. My GP said that anything after a 12 month break needs to be investigated so I've booked an appointment.
About 3 years ago I had a lot of upset so lost 2.5 (approx 30 pounds) stones in 5 weeks and was also coming off the pill so I am wondering if that upset my body.It was only the other month that I donated all my stock of tampons to my friend!! Leenie x
|Thanks Gals, I was shocked today when I found I had once again my period after about 15 months of no period. I too was told if you go through one year without, that was it!....but I guess it is not. I am calling my doctor just to be sure, but Wow! I could not believe it!
None of my friends have had a "relapse" after 12 months, so I was freaking out! Thanks for letting me know, there are others with the same condition as I.
Gotta go now and visit the pharmacy for some tampons!! Grrr! thought I was free and clear of those things!!!
