Customer Question

Last year ( Jan 15 ) I had my Merina coil removed and have not had a period since . Prior to that I had experienced the occasional extremely light 'show ' . At the time of removal I had my 'reproductive ' region ultra sounded and all was healthy and normal.
Over the last few weeks I have been experiencing the clear stretchy discharge that I used to have when ovulation and interestingly my boobs are tender and sensitive like they used to be when having a menstrual cycle.
Also I have experienced a light , odourless light discharge - have taken a couple of canes tan pesseries as think it might have been thrush. Am still getting a small amount of white ( watery ) staining in my knickers .
Can you advise - I am 56 years old
