Pink tinged mucous during menopause
ariesv1960 posted:
I am a 54 year old who has had fairly regular periods up until the past year (2013) when I began skipping them. They were fairly regular until April, then none again until October and then none until December. Since February (2014) I have had a feeling like I might get a period (some cramping and premenstrual type headaches) and have had several experiences of light pink tinged mucous that looked like a period was going to start. Should I be concerned?

Dar aries1960,
These are fairly common symptoms. If symptoms like this become bothersome enough to you, do check in with your health care provider, who can suggest things to help remedy them. But these do sound like fairly common problems.
Good luck,
Mary Jane
