My wife is 50 years old and has had a range from spotting to very heavy mensus vitually every day for over 1 1/2 years. She had std. and trans vag ultra sound, pap, blood tests done by GP about 1 month ago. He indicated most likely a fibroid. US showed mass in fundus 7.7 X 4.3 CM. Endometrial wall has thickened to 16mm, 2 small simple cysts on ovaries and small amount of free fluid in cul de sac. Other symtoms include painful and frequent urination, pain and bleeding after sex, pelvic pain, gas and bloating after meals, constipation, fatigue, look of being 3 months pregnant (bulge at lower ab), sometimes legs and ankle swell, sometimes pain just below right rib cage. She has had 2 children by C-section (breach birth) and 1 miscarriage. She had to have a D&C after the miscarriage, about 20 years ago due to excessive bleeding. Her pap was normal except for bacterial vaginosis. Estradiol 658, Follicle 2.4, Luetinizing 7.6. She is very resistant to seeing an GYN and it was difficult for me to get her to the GP.
