Period two weeks early - has this happened to anyone else?

I'm 42, with a (usually) clockwork cycle of 28 days.

My period has arrived unexpectedly today 17 days after the beginning of the last one. (Zero chance of pregnancy, btw).

Is this perimenopause?

Your experiences would help calm me down a bit, so thanks ladies smile

could be - check the meno thread.

i am 45 and mine comes whenever it feels like it nowadays.

Mine did this a couple of years ago. Then started being rather erratic. Now I haven't had a period since August so I think I'm probably menopausal. Doc says that at age 50 (which I am) no period for 6 months is a pretty good indication of menopause even though blood tests didn't agree.

@Mycatsaysach - Yep, spotted the meno thread after I posted this, and can see that my exp. is pretty normal!

But would still like to hear from anyone else.

sigh Did anyone of us ever think the menopause would actually happen to us? That's for grannies, isn't it???? smile

I'm 49 and have had erratic periods and various perimenopause symptoms for a while. Just finished a long but light period and two days lighter it's started again. Going to see gynae, but anyone else had this?

I've just had an ovulation, one month from my last period.
I've found that my periods are becoming more erratic, and some cycles are anovulatory, with very light manageable periods, and periods after ovulation are humongously bloody, clotty and crampy.

I've had pmt for three weeks and have burst out in acne, with hot flashes too.
All blood tests normal... Am 45.

Sorry to witter on so, what I'm trying to say OP is that, it depends, and if you're really concerned, go to your GP and get blood tests done. Hth.
