I am 45 years old and for the past maybe 3 to 4 months my periods have been coming twice a month, like 17 days in between. It will stop for about 12 hours and then I will spot, see bright red blood when I wipe. The other night I woke up with EXTREME pain in my left side and some back pain. the location of the pain was to high up to be from my ovaries. I had similar pain about 4 months ago and I thought it was a kidney stone, at that time was positive for a uti. I'm starting to get freaked out... thinking the worst. I'm going to make an appt but anyone had similar symptoms?
