Im 46 and although I have endometriosis and a cyst on an ovary Ive had 2 periods in 2 weeks.

Bang out of the unusal for me never had any period probs but strangely the other week my boobs were killing me and that was 1 week after my "first" period and I felt as if I was ovulating...deep stabbing pains.

Then a week later exactly 2 weeks after my "first" period Im bleeding again - very fresh red blood.

If I am going through my change in life I want to know - was thinking about going to see Dr - is there a blood test you can have to detect mother nature??? Oh my sister was 46 at the start of hers ... I dont have any other symptons though

...although I have noticed over the last few months that my hair when washing it has been coming out alot

what do you think???

Yes I had a blood test. My hair was the same, and apparently genetics is an indicator.
