I am 45 years old in perimenopause. Have been for 5 years now. I have been taking soy, black cohosh, & dong quai for my symptoms. Works like a charm. My periods without the herbs are spuratic. With the herbs my periods come like clockwork, every 28 days. So I have stayed on the herbs since they make me regular. My last period was due 9 days ago. I am feeling very bloated (which I never am), I have had vaginal discharge for 6 or more days (cloudy, stretchy)and still am, I had 3 days of very light spotting 10 days before my period was due, my nipples are very sore (I never get sore nipples just sore breasts), my breasts are not sore, I have been more tired than usual, and I have a history of ovarian cysts.
Any idea what could be causing my problems?
