I'm 52! I had hot flashes when I was 51. I have regular period since age 12 but when I was 51, it stopped and then resumed after 4 months. First 3 months, the bleeding was normal; just a 3 day cycle. But on the 4th month, I suddenly had a heavy period on the first day and it's almost 3 months now that I have bleeding but just kind of spotting and I have to wear sanitary pads always because I don't know if I'll suddenly have heavy period! I've been to my obstetrician-gynecologist and she gave me some medicines for my hot flashes and told me to just be calm and embrace my peri-menopausal stage! I hope this would end soon because it's driving me nuts!

I'm 50 in a few weeks and have been experiencing the regular peri-menopause symptoms of irritability (to say the least), restlessness, weight gain, irregular periods, anxiety, dry skin, interrupted sleep, urinating in my panties, and I'm an emotional wreck! At this point, I'm just hoping that my husband and I can make it through this and I don't eat my young.

I haven't had a period in a year. I'm going through perimenopause. I started bleeding last Saturday, it's about 7 days, still it's not stopping, but not very heavy.

I am 49 years old. Before my periods, I experienced headaches that got slight relief with NSAIDS. My period is not heavy last for three days, but a year ago, I experienced a strong residual weakness with hot flashes, nausea, salivation, and heart palpitations, all of which seemed to defy treatment.
