Is this normal?
I am turning 52 in June and haven't started through menopause yet. The past three cycles have been very weird though. Flow is very very heavy for the past three months and have had dark spotting after periods. My cycle started on April 5th, went heavy for several days and then had spotting for two weeks. I started for the second time this month today. I haven't had a day in the last 20 days without some sort of flow. Is this normal for my age? Could I be starting through menopause? My mother had uterine cancer, so I'm a little worried. The only other symptoms are backache, insomnia, and breast cysts. I did have a squamous cell growth removed from the vulva area last year. Thanks. Shannon
