Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Because you are between ages 40 and 58, you are most likely either in midst premenopause or menopause. Do you have any other symptoms like hot flashes and/or night sweats?
Irregular periods, shorter, lighter periods, heavier periods, phantom periods, shorter cycles and longer cycles are all common side effects.

I hope this helps.
Be well,
