Bleeding/Spotting between periods

Hi, I just turned 47 and have recently been having some problems with spotting between periods. I've always been like clockwork every 28 days, am not on any birth control, and no kids.

Last month I got my period on time, but then 2 weeks later I thought I was getting it again, but it was more brown than red in color and lasted only a couple days. That came and went a few times, but then this past Monday the brown spotting was back and it's been this way for 5 days. No period in sight though. I feel fine otherwise.

I'm a bit concerned, I don't seem to have any other symptoms though, no hot flashes or anything else. Could this be the beginning of menopause? Or something else?

Thanks for any help.

Re: Bleeding/Spotting between periods

I have read that some ladies do spot during ovulation (mid-month).
I just had a tiny spotting this month...first time every. I'm 48.

I think it has something to do with how much estrogen is coursing through our bodies at any one time.

I am 47 and had the same problem last year....My period was like that, and then the brown spotting in between, etc. for a few months..I went to the gyn and she said it was peri menopause....I had bloodwork, paps, etc and all my tests were normal...I started taking BCP for a few months, and that straightened it out...But the pill made me very nauseated, dizzy, and i gained weight, even though it was a low dose..I stopped the pill and have not had any problems for almost a year, so I think your symptoms seem normal to me for your age..
