Post menstrual tension ???

Hi all. I'm nearly 43 and over the past few months I've noticed that although my periods continue to be regular the way I feel around them has changed. I now seem to get bad PMT prior to ovulation. I also get cramping then too, rather than before my actual period. I don't seem to get the same egg white mucus I used to get on ovulation and am not sure I'm actually ovulating any more (years ttc means I'm pretty sure fair with the mechanics of it all!)
Anyone had any similar experience? I can't find anything relevant on the Internet. I'm obviously worried there's something wrong but not worried enough to go to the GP. Not mid-cycle bleeding, bloating or anything else. Am I just peri menopausal?

Thanks in advance.

yes, i have expirienced similar.. It's like a total disturbance of the normal routine. I expect to feel good at certain times and bad at others, but it's all messed up now, I feel pretty rubbish most of the time!
This for me coincided with my cycle shortening by about 6 days... I think it's all down to the crazy disrupted peri- hormones
