I sure will be waiting, thanks so much! I am also pulling up your recommended reading that you sent to me. It could be the fibroids, since I do have about 6 of them and 2 are about the size of a golf ball. But, now that I found from a year ago, the item about a cyst on my ovary measuring 3.3, that concerns me? So, basically you are saying that if someone is in Perimenopause it is normal to have lengthy periods....but not normal to have it as long as I do, correct? I guess it could be the fibroids! I really do not want to have surgery due to my paranoia about being put under.
