am 44 and have always had regular cycles, so all of this came as quite a surprise and something i was not ready for by any means!! About 8 months ago noticed that my periods were becoming more frequent..like every 2 weeks. this prompted a visit to my gyn for annual exam..everything was normal. My periods went back to regular until this past november...i have not had a period for 3 months!! scared to death i was prego...went back to MD..not pregnant she thought i might be in perimenopause..all blood work came back in normal range..even my FSH and estrogen. I was sure it would be out of wack since i felt out of WACK!! Now..since the beginning of the this month i have been having spotting on and off all month every few days..somtimes very light sometimes moderate. She has now wanted me to start Provera for 10days to normalize things..anyone else going through this?? Not sure about the whole Provera thing!! Im afraid my bleeding will be extremely heavy when i stop taking it. IDEAS???View Thread
