    Default Perimenopause? Maybe TMI but need reassurance

    Ok so heres the deal - I am 46 years old. FOr the last couple of years cycles have been 22-29 days. Well I had a cycle the beginning of Oct that was 26 days but was really weird - lots of clots and then only spotting. Than 16 days later I started again! This time 2 heavy days with lots of clots again then brownish spotting!! Now on day8 of cycle and DH and I did the deed last night - guess what I have this morning? Light reddish spotting again! Guess it's time to talk to my gyn again. So sick of wearing a pad - hate that 'not so fresh' feeling it gives you. Any advice from others who have been there?

    Perimenopause begins way before the big 'M' hits. Your cycle sounds like one that is typical for a perimenopausal woman but seeing the gyn is a good thing. I hit the big "M" early - late 40's. Go see a doc. They should do some tests to confirm perimenopause.
