Premenopause

07/07/2008

Question:

I have been taking medication that has affected my periods but I have been off of them for about 6 months now. About 7 months ago I had a very heavy period and since then they have been very light. I use to have my peroid for 7 days. Now it lasts for three days and heavy one day during those three days. This month it only lasted 2 days and only heavy for a few hours. I am 34 years old and can`t have childern because of my plumanary hypertension. Could I be in premenopause? I hope so I would love not to have periods any more.

Answer:

Without knowing your complete medical history and medication list, I cannot answer your question.  It would be good for you to review your menstrual history along with your medical history and medication list with your gynecologist.
