I'm so glad this site is still here. I think I was here 6 years ago, if not more.. Wow, things sure do change in that space of time
I recently realized I have been in the throws of premenopause for a few years. At least in hingsight, I sure have had a lot of symptoms.
But now I'm wondering what to expect regarding periods.
Does your period just stop one month, without much warning?
Does it taper off over time and then disappear (the flow becomes lighter and lighter until nothing)?
Can I go from a full "regular" period in June to some spotting in July and then nothing at all in August?
Does the time between periods just start becoming longer and longer, but the flow remains the same (going 5-6-7-8 weeks with nothing, then a full period again)?
I guess what I want to know is: when does this torture stop? LOL At age 51, I'm so tired of having a full, heavy, miserable period.
I'm not sure if I can expect it to just stop, or if I need to endure months of very irregular periods-- late one month, light one month, heavy one month, gone one month, etc.
Thank you for any insight :-)
