Hello, and thank you for sharing your question.

Premenopausal symptoms can start in your 40's, so you are right that it may be the reason for these usual periods.  Each period should generally be at least 28 days a part.  But since your period earlier this month was so short, it shouldn't be dangerous for your body to have them so close together.  

I suggest that you wait through this period and your next one and see how they go.  If these next 2 periods are irregular as well, you can assume it is premenopausal. 

You can also visit your doctor to receive more information on the best ways to go through this transition.
