In August I was 16 days late then had my period. Two weeks later I had it again. Then in November I had 5 days of what I'll call heavy spotting. Only needed a mini pad. Then it was followed immediately by a regular period. Today I'm in my 5th day of heavy spotting again. Does this sound like I've reached a new level of being closer to menopause? Also, I'm waking up at 5 and 5:30 am wide awake.
