Menstrual Cramps after Menopause
ridofcancer posted:
I have been feeling like I have menstruating cramps, but have been without periods for over 2 yrs after my chemo treatments. I am 54 years old. Is this normal?
Mary Jane Minkin, MD responded:
Dear ridofcancer,
Sorry that you had to deal with cancer, but delighted you are now cured, which is great. Occasionally, ovaries can wake up, even a couple of years after chemo (it's unusual but can happen). The easiest way to tell if your ovaries are doing anything is to check a blood FSH test and estradiol test; if the FSH is low, they may indeed be waking up. However, the bowel can mimic menstrual cramps (some folks with diverticular problems can get these symptoms. ) So if indeed the ovaries aren't doing much, do check in with your primary care doc to look at the bowel.
Good luck,
Mary Jane
ridofcancer replied to Mary Jane Minkin, MD's response:
Thank you for your answer to my question. It was Colon Cancer that I had, I will bring this to the attention of my Oncologist. Hopefully this has to do with just my ovaries. Sincerely, ridofcancer
