"Night and day." That's what Gina, who didn't want her last name used, kept repeating to describe how the underwent a surgery nearly two years ago she said changed her life. Gina, 52, said she expected menopause to be "lighter," with the attendant hot flashes and "everything else that goes along with that." "It didn't happen," she said.
Gina was diagnosed with mennorrahgia, or excessive menstrual bleeding found in some menopausal women, two years ago, a condition that caused her to bleed three weeks out of the month. "Oh, what were the adjectives," the East Lyme resident said. "Constant, copious amounts of bleeding." For her, it was an embarrassing problem that caused her great discomfort and pain.
