Almost 56 years old and still no Menopause!

View More Posts Ignore
Hi Everyone,
I am 55 and a half years old, and still in perimenopause, getting those annoying irregular periods. I missed 2 months, and I was happy thinking I may be on my way to menopause. But, 10 days ago I got it again, and I still have it! ( ten days of bleeding).
I went to the Drs. and he did an Endometrial Biopsy, and put me on 10 mg. of medroxyprogesterone for ten days only. I will start taking the meds tonight. He thinks that the bleeding is likely attributed to the "irregular periods" that come with Perimenopause. But, he has to rule out cancer.
I am concerned about taking this HRT, and especially concerned about the biopsy results. I have had papsmears, some cervical biopsies, and col poscopies, every 6 months for the past 2 years due to abnormal pap results. So, I have been watched for Cervical Cancer, but not for Uterus Cancer. If there was a problem with my Uterus, wouldn't something have shown up from all those Cervical Tests?????

Any thoughts anyone?
Thanks for any responses!

" I turned 56 last June and that is when I had my last period, so it has not been quite a year yet. I have those abnormal PAPS too. I have had the colpos and the endometrial biopsies. My GYN can't figure why my PAPS are always abnormal but she thinks it is because I have a prolapsed uterus. When she does the PAP she is picking up cells from the vagina. I have been going through the same thing you have and for many years. See my new post under "have a question". I think you are probably fine. "
