Discuss with doctor: It is common in your age group for your period to change as you enter perimenopause and then once you have no,period for 12 months then you are officially menopausal. See doctor to discuss what changes are normal, or what things need to be checked out so you won't worry as you go through this time period for possibly the next few years. Keeping a calendar to review with your doctor can help.
