I turned 60 in December. I began having menopause symptoms in my early 40’s. Two of my symptoms were heavy bleeding and longer periods. I remember telling my husband it would eventually become 100% of the time. I decided to have uterine ablation. That was over 10 years ago. Problem solved.
After a few years without as much as a drop of blood I began noticing very small amounts of blood on toilet paper. The timing of these minor “periods?” was always immediately after I spent time with young females. When I lived at home my and my sister’s periods were in sync. I have not shared a dwelling with any other females since getting married.
I began to notice this phenomenon repeat itself infrequently, but when it did it was ALWAYS after spending time with young (fertile?) women. I asked my doctor and she said the fact that I’m bleeding at all means I am still peri menopausal.
I’d love to know if there is any science that might explain this. Also, it’s still happening!!
