Hello everyone. I have an endometrial biopsie scheduled for Friday and am wondering if what I have been experiencing is familiar to any of you.
I had my last period 14 months ago after years of perimenopause. Irregular and heavy bleeding. I was thrilled to have gone over a year with no period! I had hot flashes, chin hairs and got up every few hours at night to pee. Then a couple of weeks ago I got a period! Not fair!! I had tender breasts, pimples and mild cramps. Needless to say I was less than thrilled! I saw my gyn and had a ultrasound. My endometrium was a little thick at 6mm and cysts on my ovaries that will be reevaluated by ultrasound in a few weeks. Off and on for about 5 years I have had a pain low in my back and extending down the outside of my left thigh that no amount of over the counter pain meds could touch! Sometimes the pain was so bad when I first would stand up that I almost fell down. Driving is horrible! My gyn thought it might have been caused by fibroids but I was too busy at work to go for an ultrasound and just ate tylenol like candy and forgot about it until the next time it flared up. Needless to say it has been more than 3 years since I last saw my gyn. Does any of this sound like what you have experienced?
Thank you so much for sharing your stories and your knowledge!
