I have been having trouble with my periods for the last year – I am 34 and seem to be showing some signs of menopause – this month I had a particularly bad period which I thought had finished on saturday and had no flow for about 24 hrs and then a small flood of hot translucent brown liquid which carried on for a few hours and then nothing again. It happened again today to a lesser degree. I had some blood tests done about 6 months ago and the doctor said all was normal – no infection – no hormone drop – can anyone give me any insight into this – it is unlikely to be an std – I have not been active for about a year!
