I've had this and GP said, could just be fluctuating hormones when you ovulate. I also had very heavy periods, so was referred for scans and gynae appt. Upshot was that I have something called endomyosis. Nothing to worry about. GP wanted to check for fibroids, polyps etc - also nothing to worry about.
Speak to your GP, but don't panic at this stage - lots of possible explanations.
thanks, i am mid cycle, and did have tender boobs the other day. ovulating probably... never had it before, usually know to the day when period is coming. have been getting more PMT symptoms in the last 6 months, much much more tender boobs etc, never had that pre-kids.
After about 30 I used to get a mid-cycle bleed every month as you describe (until I got to the menopause, in fact.) It did worry me at first but GP wasn't concerned and so I definitely wouldn't worry as it is common and most likely completely normal, but I would mention it to your GP - just so you get that peace of mind.
i have booked a GP appt but nothing til weds... had a smear test earlier this year so hopefully nothing that they wouldn't have picked up then! heavier bleeding today, with some tummy ache, seems like a normal period, strange after 2 weeks.
