  • I'm not really sure where I am on the good ole menopause chart, but am assuming I am somewhere in the middle! LOL! I went from having a regular type period to them being totally messed up. They did get kind of heavier for about 6 months. I went from that to not having a period at all. That was all been within the last year! Haven't had a regular one since about June. I did start taking Activella recently though, so I did spot a little.
