Watery discharge with clots a perimenopause symptom?

Hello,
I'm 42 and recently experienced a very light pink, very watery discharge with a few small blood clots. I've never had anything like that before. Initially my thoughts were that something was terribly wrong (I always go to the worst-case scenario first!) but now I'm wondering if that type of watery discharge is simply a common perimenopausal symptom? If anyone else has any experience with something similar I'd appreciate any thoughts or suggestions. Thanks! =)

Hi Linda,

I tend to think the worst too. :) Any changes in your menstrual cycle should be looked at by you GYN. Is this discharge happening when you are not on your menstrual cycle?

It's been a month since I last posted that and I had the exact same thing happen again - a little gush of pink discharge and then it stops. Both times it happened about a week before my period is due. So I'm thinking that it's just a new change in my cycle. Thank you Lainey if you still happen to check in here from time to time! =)

Hi Anon_34616,

You are very welcome and I am so glad for your update!

I wonder if what you are (now experiencing) monthly is a common change for perimenopause. Good question for Dr. Minkin!

This community is fortunate to have Annie as the moderator! She is experiencing menopause herself and you can rely on her for those changes from perimenopause to menopause. :)
