Period after menopause
« on: April 20, 2014, 11:21:46 AM »
Posted a few days ago about my fear of ovarian cancer.  Well, things just got more stressful.  About a year and a half post menopause and I get a period.  Googled (I know, I know) and apparently this means cancer 10% of the time.  10%.  Now completely panicked.

Bellwether; I got a period after a year of not having my period. Doctor did some tests and it wasn't cancer. You will be fine.

It's not as uncommon as one thinks to get a period post menopause!  My mom knew a lady (just recently) that was 5 years post and started bleeding a LOT!  She had all tests or whatever they do and she had nothing (nothing bad I mean - that's all the lady was concerned about, it being cancer or something, and it wasn't, she's fine)  I knew another woman about 2 years post and she merely started getting periods again for about another year - no reason, just started up again!  (this was about 6 or 7 years ago, she's fine).

I think I commented in your other thread, but it's more likely to be a polyp or fibroid than cancer.  I'd be scared in your position too because HA makes us assume the worst possible thing, but try not to stress out.  See your doctor and go from there.
