Periods getting further apart at 45yrs old. Is this the start of peri menopause?
It seems that my periods have started getting further and further apart. I used to be very regular and have them every 28-30 days. Then a couple of months ago it became 35 days, then two weeks later I had it again but very slight. Now it's already 45 days and nothing. I have all the PMS symptoms but no period. My OB said just to wait till it comes. I've read in another thread about women getting lots of continuous bleeding, but mine is the opposite. I'm also getting mood swings, feel lethargic, have insomnia. Is anybody else with a similar situation?
@victoria Hi Victoria
no two women are the same ...
Basically, periods decline at different levels for each woman.
12 - 14 months no periods following peri menopause = post menopause
(if no HRT or birth control is taken)
HRT works for some ladies but HRT just postpones menopause and boosts the hormones back up, so when HRT is stopped peri menopause starts all over again.
I didn’t take HRT and didn’t want to, I am now post-menopause age 51
after a 9/10-year natural peri Meno. (using supplements and vitamin boosts)
