Mentrual cycle shortening

Has this happened to anyone else? I've always been regular as clockwork, 28 days, 5 days bleed. This last year my periods have been between 5 and 9 days long and over the last 6 months they've been coming every 24 days on average, lasting over a week. That only gives me a couple of weeks off before the next one comes. Is this something that happens with age? I'm 32, have 3 children, youngest is 4.

Sounds possibly perimenopausal to me - your GP could check your hormone levels for you

Thank you, that's what I was afraid of sad
Will get to GP as soon as possible.
