Periomenopause and Periods

I am 43. I'm pretty sure I have been having some signs of peri since I turned 40. My doctor told me I was a little young for that but after hearing others stories, I know I'm not to young. Anyhow, what is bothering me the most is the irregular periods. I might have it every two weeks and then as now, I haven't had it for 40 days. It just makes me very nervous to not get a period. I am not at a point in my life where I would want anymore children and I find this rather scary not knowing what's going on. I'm interested in others stories on this and how long this has gone on for them.

Re: Periomenopause and Periods

I'm post meno now. My periods started getting irregular 6 years before meno. I started skipping periods the following year. I had 10 periods that year, then 6 in each of the next 3 years, and then 3 in the final year.

I was actually more nervous the year that my periods started getting irregular; I had 16 of them that year. Some were just spotting for a few days; some went on and on for as long as 2 weeks. My doctor sent me off for tests to rule out endometrial cancer. That was really nerve wracking.

Mostly though, it was just an annoyance, especially at work. I always had to have supplies with me; I was always running to the bathroom to see what was going on. I was really happy when they finally stopped.
