Menopause

Another 12 months?

02/28/2007

Question:

I am 50 years old and have not had a period for 6 months. That is until today when I noticed some brown when I wipe and some that discharges in my panties. Not enought to consider a period, but do I need to start my counting all over again to be 12 months free of a period?

Thank You

Answer:

If that is all there is, you would not need to count that as a period.
