Short cycles

Hi, everyone,

I'm 47, and my last two periods have been about 20 days apart (from the beg. of one to the beg. of the next). Yikes! I saw my doctor last week and he said he wouldn't do anything unless I had a pattern of 21 days from one to the next. Well, this makes two months. If I have another month like this, should I go back to him? Is there any pill that is safe for me to take at my age to regulate this?

I wouldn't care so much except I've finally met a wonderful man after many years of looking, and having my period every two weeks is putting a real damper on things!!

Re: Short cycles

If you're not having any other symptoms, I would think he could put you on birth control pills to regulate you. I don't understand why you have to be every 21 days before he'll do anything. Have you been tested for fibroids or any abnormalities that would be making you bleed more often? If all is okay, I don't see why you can't go on the pill. There are a few ladies on it on the board.

Good luck!
