Default So this happened to me today...

... I got my period. I just finished one 13 days ago. I am assuming its all part of perimenopause. I have been feeling a little blue and tired so I'll see if my thyroid meds need adjusting but man this was a surprise.

The same thing happened to me, must be two years ago now, freaked me out a bit so off I went to the dr. She said it could be perimenopause but was probably just a "hormonal blip". I've been pretty much regular again ever since, I sometimes think menopause is never going to happen.

That's me, two weeks on, two off. Been that way for a couple of years now (I'm 46). I'm just hoping we don't do that "dorm room thing," where everyone's period syncs, because that would suck for my little girl.

My sisters are 10 and 7 years older than I am and they went through this too. In fact, my oldest sister had hers non-stop for a while. I think it's all gone now.

That happened to me a few times before I got back on the pill three years ago. The doctor didn't find anything wrong, but I'm sure it's due to perimenopause. I'm considering going off it now but I don't relish my period becoming irregular again.

I've been "hormonally blipping" for the past 4.5 months...

I hope yours are straightened out soon.
I've been having a period pretty much twice a month for a few years now. Long, heavy, periods with huge clots (some have been nearly fist sized, no exaggeration). After 3 doctors I finally found one who listened and am now going broke having tests and seeing what's up. Hormones are fine, not perimenopause. We know there are some very large fibroids and something possibly wrong with one ovary. More tests next week. I'd be fine with them yanking everything out. I'm tired of it all.
Well that was a little ranty. But my period just started yet again so I'm in a ranty mood. And ranty is the nicest word I could think of. : )

Jeep, I have a lot experience in this arena if you have any questions. I had problems since I was 18. After 19 years, I finally had my surgery. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Thanks juanab. I was so lucky and never had problems my whole life. Then 3-4 years ago it all went to hell. Blah!

Thanks spring! I didn't mean to make your thread all about me. Even tho, ya know, the world DOES revolve around me. : )
Having problems for 3 years compared to others who've had problems for decades - I'm lucky. Plus I don't have pain, except in my wallet.
