slight spotting and missed period age 45

Hello all. Until this month I have never missed a period. I am 45 and my periods have become shorter. They are like 2 or 3 days instead of 5. My daughter got married a couple of weeks ago in Las Vegas. A whole group of us went and I was a little stressed. My period came a week late yet but it was only a light spotting. Then for the last two weeks I spot a light pink color just on the tissue after going to the bathroom. It could stop for a couple of days and then do it again. It's weird. Has anyone else had this? I am on bioidentical progesterone cream and have been for a year and a half. Haven't had this happen until this month. Any idea's for me? Thanks for any replies!please wait 2 seconds for an uncompressed image, or press Ctrl+F5 for original quality page

Re: slight spotting and missed period age 45

Hi TEdds83,

It's probably from the extra stress you had this month with your daughter getting married and all. You are at the perfect age for peri to set in and your periods will change dramatically. When I first started peri, I had periods about every 2-3 weeks and very light and then I would have a really bad one. Now that I am 51 and still getting them, I will skip for about 2 months and get a real heavy one. I use to be a regular 28 day cycle. Don't stress about it, it's completely natural. I think just having more on your plate this month made it happen. I hope your daughter's wedding was wonderful! Congratulations!!
