Hi everyone . . . just wondered if any of you have experienced heavy menstruation since you have entered your 40s?
The second day I am just flooding and clots and everything else and when I mentioned it to the doctor, she said that she hears that alot from women in their 40s. I have had three children and she said it is part of the deal with the years before menopause. Just wondered if it truly is the case or if I am alone? It is only the second day and then it tapers and is pretty ok from day 3-5. Just feel like I can't leave the house on day 1 or 2.
Have been trying to conceive #4, but with no luck as of yet. Thinking as I near age 43 (next week) that it is over for me.
Read that at 43 the odds are only like 13% each cycle. Is that true? Very depressing.
Baby dust to all.
