38yo and my period has become short (2-3 days) but very heavy. Vomit on the first day of my period now. This all started in the last few years. No kids, if it matters. Any other experiences like that?

Did you have an ultrasound? Mine got really heavy post kids. Eg I can bleed though a super

Definitely visit your doc because there could be something there. I experienced horrible periods around the same age and it turned out to be nothing but my doc put me on continuous birth control pills, so no periods at all! It is wonderful. Female gynos for the win.

Are you on the pill? Fibroids?

Hmm—okay because long term pill use will make your period shorter. Fibroids make you have heavy periods so was thinking maybe you have that combo,

May be a sign of cysts. Go get checked out!

I’ve talked to my gyno and he says everything is fine

Thank you - that’s a good call

I am 43 and have had my period become regular like clockwork, be very heavy like you for 2-3 days then just end. No pain, no vomiting, no cramps, nada. I plan on seeing my obgyn but I wonder in the meantime if it is normal for women who have no kids like us, OP, and are getting older...?!?!?

What kind of ultrasound? Transvaginal ultrasounds or a sonohysterogram will pick up more on imaging than a standard ultrasound. Short, very heavy periods with vomiting doesn’t sound normal. I’d push for more imaging.

That’s helpful. Mine was a transvaginal ultrasound

There’s this attorney at my firm who has a massive litigation docket. We were staffed on a matter together and he basically took the matter over and didn’t let me help (not copying me on anything).
I recently received an email on that matter saying that discovery was never answered. I think the managing partner thinks I’m still staffed on this case. I am a bit taken aback that I was not allowed to touch the case when it wasn’t even being worked up by the senior. Any advice?

Recently married and I feel like my husband is having a midlife crisis. He is in investment banking and hates his life but loves the pay. He has no interest in consulting. One day he wants to buy a business, the next be CFO at a start up, then become a real estate investor. I want to be supportive but our financials don’t have wiggle room for him to fail (paying student debt). How can I be supportive while also needing him to have his act together?
