To my dear fellow ladies,
Has your menstrual cycle gone a bit wacky?
What it might mean: Unusually heavy cramps or lower back pain are one of the few symptoms of endometriosis.
What it might mean: Talk with your doctor about the possibility of endometrial polyps or pelvic infection.
What it might mean: If your clothes are suddenly tight through the abdomen--the key word is "suddenly"--it could signal ovarian cancer.
What it might mean: You may associate extra-heavy periods with perimenopause, but they could also signals endometrial cancer or fibroids.
