I am 50 yrs. old and had an ablation 10 yrs. ago. I started having a period half a year ago, lately I have been more on than off. This morning I started hot flashes back to back. Is this normal?

I just realized, I have had heavy bleeding or spotting for 16 days this month! Plus sudden vomiting has been an issue lately and when I'm not having hot flashes I am freezing. I'm not even sure if this is all related. I do know it's wearing me out....

Mary Jane Minkin, MD replied to deb105's response:
Dear deb105,
I am not sure what to make of your symptoms. Vomiting would be unlikely to be related to perimenopausal issues. I think some hormone levels would be helpful here, and I think you'll need some evaluation of the lining of the uterus.
Do visit you gyn to try to get this all worked out,
Good luck,
Mary Jane
