Hi. My question is that I have always had a pretty regular period. It has become really irregular since last month along with sweats, loss of concentration. I told my daughter about my symptoms (she is a nurse) and she said it wasnt uncommon. The symptom I am most concerned with is the vaginal bleeding.It is not a huge amount of blood but enough to be annoying. I have never had this before.I am not soaking thru or anything. I just need to find out what it can be. I am otherwise a very healthy active person.I am worried it is some other problem rather than perimenopausal symptoms.I have an appointment in a couple of days with my doctor so I just dont know what to expect.I dont know a lot about this end of things when it comes to menopause.Do you think it could be realy serious?View Thread
I have a huge concern right now regaring my period and the whole deal with Perimenopause symptoms. I am 46 years old. I have been expreriencing what i was sure was the beginning stages of menopsause wih irregular periods, loss of concentration, hot flashes. Since I had my last period, ( three weeks ago). I have been spotting blood (for about a few days now). Its not a huge amount or anything. My daughter is a nurse and she says it is not abnormal. I am however worried hopefully unecessarily. At this age I should know things about this but i really dont know much at all about symptoms of menopause. I have an appointment with the Dr. in a couple of days. I have had regular testing and have been fine in the past. I hope you can give me some direction as to what to expect or what actually is normal.Is there something you can take from the Dr. to help with this problem? ot is it a larger issue Im dealing with??View Thread
