I think I have been starting to be peri menopausal for the last few years. For a while I was going forty days in between a period. Then in this last year, I noticed a big change. I am also on Seroquel for anxiety and sleep, so I'm not sure if that could be causing it too. And it also says that peri menopause can cause weight gain in the stomach. I have a big stomach, partly because I have given birth to four children and the last one was a ceserean birth. For the last three years, my stomach has been big. And this about the same length of time that I have been on Seroquel. In April and May, my periods started to be less and less. I have also been sexually active this year with several different partners. In July 22nd, I finally had a period and it was nine weeks in between periods. I'm 43. Then I had a kind of heavy one for a few days in the week before August 19th. August 19th or a few days before I met my new boyfriend and it has just been us since then. I finally am having my first heavy period now from Nov. 8 to 11th. I had a tinge of in October, but that doesn't really seem to count. About three weeks ago I got tested for HCG and HIv among some of the basic stuff. The HIV and HCG came back negative. I also cheated and had a few sips of soda that day, when I was supposed to fast, so cholesterol was up. In the last few weeks, I developed a cyst on vagina and my doctor said it was a regular cyst. Then she wanted to test me for chlamydia and gonneria. Negative for gonneria but positive for chlamydia, so now I am on antibiotics and my boyfriend is going to get tested again and he will get on antibiotics too. We will be refraining from sex for 7 days.
Also wasn't sure if drinking the soda would have affected the HCG test. I gave blood in September and it was good and negative for all the other std stuff.
