  • Your periods are becoming irregular. It's totally normal. To be sure you are in pre-menopause, see your Dr., she can take some blood tests to be sure. But, that is normal symptoms.. Yeah, it's almost over!!!

  • My mother went through that at the beginning of menopause. She was also diagnosed at the same time with a cyst on one of her ovaries that was affecting hormone production. It would be a good idea to call the doc to make sure there is not a more serious condition causing the irregular bleeding, but I believe that chances are it is pre-menopause.
