Menopause extended bleeding
My Mother in Law is going through her Menopause and complains of extended/prolonged bleeding. She had a family planning operation done. Her siblings had normal full-stop to periods. She had normal cycles till Oct'16 and 2 months break,the next first cycle which started on Jan13'17 extended till Jan 30, and got stopped with Texakind MF. Next cycle started on Feb7th and is continuing till today (Feb15). She is anemic with 7.8 on scale, to which medication is going on. We consulted a family doctor who said not to worry and is not allowing us to medicate with Texakind. USG is scheduled for 22/23rd. My Mother in law suspects something is unusual and hence this is a second opinion. Please help us sort this out.

Hi there...irregular periods may be associated with excessive bleeding leading to low levels of haemoglobin making her symptomatic..... She can have your CBC or blood count taken just to know her condition...A lot of women have pre-menstrual symptoms, most of which are related to hormonal changes/imbalance, and they disappear with the onset of menstruation....Consult nearest gynecologists they will do the needful.

Anyways she is getting a scan done ...so anything abnormal will be picked up. However at this age all blood investigations , Pap smear  .    .have to be done. If there is anything suggestive of unusual finding in the scan then the doctor will treat her accordingly...example DNC etc. So wait for the scan. Tell her not to worry till then. If she is not a diabetic tell her to have fresh fruit , fresh vegetables and spinach too are a good source of iron.
