Period twice in 5 weeks

I already posted this in womens health but decided to post it in here too if in case this is what menopause is!!

I am 46 years old and in last 3 weeks I have had 2 periods. A week after the last period I am having brown discharge but no period. Is it menopause or something that I should be concern about. I go for my regular woman checkup yearly!

Re: Period twice in 5 weeks

Two periods in 5 weeks would be normal. I'm not sure what you find odd about that. As for brown discharge, that's just old blood that wasn't expelled in a previous period. That can happen at any time.

Are you on birth control?

Re: Period twice in 5 weeks

Five years ago the exact same thing happened to me, two periods in four weeks that lasted ten days each. I had other symptoms too. I had my hormones tested and an ultrasound. That definitely was peri and I was given bcp which did wonders at the time. I was 46 just as you are now.
