I sure will let you know, I have skipped my cycle before, first time was September 2012, and cycle has been irregular ever since. My dr has told me I'm in premenopause based on blood work in March . This is the first time I've experience a prolonged cycle. I have been regular for the last 6 to 7 months. Then POW, I didn't have a regular cycle last month. I spotted for an entire week, then bled, only for one day, then spotted. Then BAM my cycle started on November 11th and it hasn't stop. I have an appt tomorrow...

Hi Babe and thanks for bringing your concern to the EmpowHER community.

Skipping your menstrual cycle one month, and then having your period for 13 days is not normal. You need to make an appointment with your gynecologist to determine what is causing your irregular periods. This is not something that can be diagnosed over the Internet.

Will you let us know what you learn?

So,I had my appointment yesterday, and my doc told my hormone progesterone was low, and he gave me a10 day supply of progesterone tablets to stop the bleeding. He also told me what would take place after I stop taking them, however this supply should help in getting everything back on track . When I had my annual check up bk in March all my blood work came back normal and negative. However my hormone indicated I'm in ppremenopause...

Hi babe - Good to hear that you saw your doctor and that you're getting the help you need to get back on track. You may also want to read some of the articles on the EmpowHER site about perimenopause to get prepared for changes that are coming your way. Hope you have more peace of mind now and than everything works out well for you. Best, Pam
