spotting-peri or cancer??
Firstly I am 46 and my mother's last period was at 52 so I feeI that I in the perimenopause stage.
But I am quite worried as for the last 4-5 months I begin to bleed about 8-12 days before my period is due.
It's bright red and enough to need a liner. Each time I think its my period starting but it just stays this way for the 8-12 days until the full bleed occurs ie day period actually due.
This month I have bad lower back pain with it and am worried. I am not on the pill.
Could it be due to perimenopause or something more sinister like cancer?
Anyone have similar experience?
