Anyone still here? I haven’t been on LJ in awhile.
Have any of you experienced a period that lasts too long? I’ll be 41 this month, I’ve never been on birth control, and I’ve never been on hormone replacement. My periods have always been very regular, aside from about a year and a half ago when I skipped one every two months three times in a row (or so, if memory serves). This month my period has gone beyond it’s normal 3-5 days... going on 9 days now. It’s light, but it’s freaking me out a little. I’m wondering if it’s just part of perimenopause? Or maybe fibroids? I’m making a doc appt soon, but was just wondering if this has happened to anyone else, and what it turned out to be.
TY for listening.
