Presumably, this is par for the course?

I'm 47. For the past couple of years my periods have been regular but different...lighter and closer together. Assumed this was perimenopause beginning.

This summer I had a normal period in July.....then absolutely nothing until the end of October, when I started having a brown discharge (sorry!) that went on for 10 days. Couple of weeks after that I had a normal period and a week after that ended the brown discharge started again, but only for a day or two.

Have Googled and every site says this is normal during the lead up to menopause. I don't need to see the doctor at this stage, do I? flushes: I am certain that I started getting them during the summer, every 3 hours or so (plus night sweats). But they've gone completely now. Is this similar to anyone else's experience?

All completely normalsmile
Could carry on like this for 5-6 years. Flushes, sweats etc will come nad go until your oestrogen levels really dive then they might be more often (mine were hourly sad)
You don't need to see a doctor ever unless you want them to prescribe HRT. It's not an illness smile
