    Question Irregular period

    Iím 40 and have always had a period every 28 days my whole life but the last 3 cycles have been 18 days 26 days and 18 days so they have all been early although just a normal 5 day period no pain or anything. I only have one ovary and no tubes which were taken a little over 4 years ago so Iím wondering if this could be the beginning of early menopause?
    Has anyone started to go through early menopause because of only having 1 ovary? I have had a few dizzy spells over the last few months as well and feeling really hot but I didnít think much about it until my period starting becoming irregular.
    I will be making an appointment with my doctor but just wondering if anyone has gone through anything similar?

    Re: Irregular period

    The removal of one ovary can impair ovarian function causing impaired fertility, irregular cycles, and an earlier and possibly more severe menopause. It would seem that tube removal could also cause problems since the tubes are part of the "reproductive" system which has lifelong functions, one of which is to produce hormones our whole lives to keep us healthy.
