Question:

im 35 years old,and have had blood tinged discharge inbetween my periods for about 2 years now.now im having oeriods that are 9 days apart.the doctor scared me said i need biopsy.i still think its menopause but im not sure.

Answer:

It is very appropriate that your doctor recommended a biopsy.  Tests are often scary, but it is important to find out as soon as possible if there is a condition that needs a special treatment.  It might also be good to check your blood count to be sure you are not anemic.  Consider taking a multivitamin with iron.
