Periods gone haywire

I’ve been tracking my cycles for about a year now. Typically they last between 22-26 days.

My last but one period was a freak 16 day cycle, followed by a normal 22 day cycle. I’m currently on day 31 and no sign of my period or the normal symptoms I get just beforehand.

I’ve always had painful periods, needing mefenamic acid to manage them. Since June I’ve needed codeine to mange the first day of my period.

I’ve made a GP appt but they can’t see me until next week and I’m so anxious about what’s going on.

Well the obvious first question is how old are you? Because anything mid 40s onwards is, generally speaking , menopause related m
I've had normal periods for decades and in the past 6 months I've missed one, had longer and shorter cycles and they're heavier. After years and years of normality.

I had blood tests and I had a scan. All normal. I'm 47 so I think the answer is peri menopausal

If you're not of menopause age then see your doctor

I’m 28 so hopefully not menopause related. I have a GP appt but not until next week, hence the post.
