Can any women in their 40's please tell me how the period changes at this age. Does it get shorter, longer, more or less bleeding, and does the time between periods increase or decrease? I am 40, and for the first time my period was 9 days late. Is this normal for women in this age group??? Thanks.Answer Question

I'm 44, had my last child at 39. I'm like clockwork... but... I now get hormone headaches from hell, I bleed like a stuck pig... sometimes it lasts 3 days, sometimes it lasts 7 days.... oh and I sweat my ass off at night... so you can guess where I'm heading with this... left eye twitching...

I just turned 40 and have been noticing for some time now that mine are generally super nasty for one day...wouldn't want to go anywhere for fear of embarrassing myself and I get a sore back...and then for the next 3-4 days very light.
Used to last 5-6 days come like clock work and the bleeding was heavy to moderate for 3-4 days and then light.
