Q: I am 49. Until recently, I've been having a very heavy, extended period. But lately, I haven't had much of a period at all—until this month. This month it's been very heavy and has lasted for three weeks. What should I do?
I had a partial hysterectomy four years ago due to fibroids. I was 48 years old and weighed 116 pounds now I weigh 137 pounds. Do you think it was just the hysterectomy that caused my weight gain? What can I do to lose weight?
I am 52 years old and have not had a period for three months. Now, my breasts hurt so bad I can hardly sleep on them. They're sore and tender all the time. In the past, they have been sore right before my period for a couple days, but never for this long. Do I need to worry about anything, or is this probably menopause setting in?
