Hi Anon,

Why does your doctor say this is not normal? Did you stop having periods and then all of a sudden start getting them again?

Menopause can begin as early as a woman's thirties up until her sixties. If you had already gone through Perimenopause and stopped menstruating for over a year then just recently had a period in April, then that may be why your doctor thinks it may not be normal. Is he running any tests to see why you may be having what seems to be a period?
Please keep us updated,
