I am 47 years old and for the last 5 or 6 months notice my periods happening more often than before. They used to arrive every 30-32 days, but lately arrive every 24-26 days. Does this signal the beginning of menopausal transition? I don't notice any other changes.
Hi. I'm in the same boat. I'm 45 yo and since december I've been running every 15-20 days, normal cyle was 28-30 days. I called my gyn 2 weeks ago after getting my period for the 4th time in one month,(yuk) and he said to call back if it happens again, well it happened again saturday, so i'm calling him today. I don't want to go on pill, would like to let nature takes it's course, but my mood swings, irritability, forgetfullness are really getting to me. Good luck to you, but I think we're heading our way into menpause,fun, fun, lucky us...lol!!
43 years old and in the same boat. Last 3 months periods have been very odd. First 24 days, then 28 then 20. Much lighter this last time. Also been experiencing temperature issues, either freezing or dying of heat and even an occasional night sweat. I shared symptoms with my Mom and she laughed and said... You're in menopause. Lucky for me it only takes about 3 years in our family to lose the period so I'm already counting the months. Mom started at 41 and was done by 44.
