Hi Anon,

It sounds like you may be starting to go through perimenopause. One of the first symptoms of Perimenopause is a change in period. Some women have shorter, lighter periods. Other women have longer, heavier periods. For the most part irregularity is the common denominator--but it can go either way as far as frequency goes.

If you think you may be going through perimenopause,please consult your doctor.
