Hello, dmp 500.

Thank you for your post.

At this age, it's not uncommon to begin to notice some irregularity in your cycle as you enter into perimenopause (the years before your menopause when your period ends) I was at the same age when I noticed changes. You may want to see your doctor to discuss this and to be sure nothing else is going. Especially if you have not seen your GYN is a while.
