  • Missed periods and rotting animal smell

    Hi,

    I didn't have a period for five months and started today and it is extremely heavy and it smells like a dead animal.

    I had my tubes tied 12 years ago, so I don't think I am pregnant.

    I am 42 and this has been an extremely stressful year for me which might be why I skipped so many months, but I skipped three months at the beginning of the year before my stress levels went up.

    I have had multiple urinary tract infections (every six weeks) over the past year and two months. I had my urethra stretched in February and that didn't help that problem.

    Does anyone have any idea as to what is going on with me?

    Thanks,

    Annabelle

  • Extra info

    I also wanted to add this:

    I went to my regular doctor in May and had a pap smear done and it was normal. Although, I do have a cyst on my cervix that makes it difficult for them to do a cervical scrape and it has been there for almost 20 years. It goes down from the cervix all the way to the opening. I also had an ultrasound and there was no signs of any problems there.

    Thanks,

    Annabelle

    • That doesn't sound too fun! I'd try and get into the Dr to see if they can help you out.

      • I'm no doctor but ask if a D&C might be advisable. Get everything cleaned out and make a fresh start?
