Strange `periods`

I am 47 almost 48, for the last couple of years periods have been heavy and eratic - sometimes going 3/4 months between, I have also got a small fibroid. The last 2 months there has been almost nothing, just really on wiping when it`s been brownish in colour, am thinking I am peri menopausal but is this normal - whatever normal is??! thanks

Yes, I think this falls within normal - but if you're not sure, see your GP.

FWIW, my periods vary between short cycle and scanty, and long cycle and awful. I also had mid-cycle bleeding, so have recently had a full gynae once-over, and sinister causes have been excluded. It's been put down to not ovulating every month now, but hormones having a wild fandango when I do.

Yes I reckon it's normal but I would see your GP. Just to rule out any infection etc. Set your mind at ease. ..
