Turned 40 last year. Since last September periods have changed. Normal cycle is between 23 and 26 days. I had one cycle in September that was 17 days. In January I bled for three days, stopped for a week and then bled for another four days. And now, a week later, I have started bleeding again. Is this the menopause?
Thanks @PollyPerky, I will take a look at that site. I'm just 40 so would this still count as early menopause? I'm not fussed if it is because I'm done child-bearing and would quite happily stop with periods given the choice. I guess there might be all sorts of medical things I'm in ignorance about so will go off and do some reading. Tah.
