Perimenopause: At 48 years old some menstrual irregularity is expected as one approaches perimenopause. The hormonal production from the ovary begins to decrease causing cycle disruption. If you are concerned about pregnancy then proper precautions for contraception need to be taken. See an Obgyn for options.
