I used to have a period of 5 ish days. Last few months it's been 2 days. I get terrible PMT..cant sleep..rash..migraines..night sweats.excruciating tummy pains.

I'm 35. Any ideas what's going on?

I'm 40 and for the last year or so mine have got shorter, terrible cramps, exhaustion in days before. No idea why, can't exactly go to the doctor's at the moment to ask either.

Mine is only 3 days
I came off the pill 4 months ago with which I didn't have periods. Before that pill they'd be about 5-6 days so 3 is weird!

I'm 40, in perimenopause (can last uo to 10 years before periods stop). My symptoms are short flooding periods, rage-like pmt, hot sweats, insomnia, forgetfulness, dry skin, joint pain, stomach discomfort. After excluding other causes, I am on hrt and it's been wonderful, not everything is fixed but the rage and flooding have gone and ither symptoms are less severe. I did have to go private to a womens health specialist GP though.

I’m 36 and mine are shorter now. Very heavy on first day then light for two, used to be pretty consistent flow over 4 days then one light day. Changed over this year. Wondering if it’s peri menopause. thought I was too young. But maybe not.

Ah thank you. Peri menopause sounds possible. My mum was 45 when went through menopause. I want more babies!! Need to sort that one out quick ish then I guess!!
