"Missed periods": If you are in mid to late 30's, the frequency of your menstrual cycles may vary occasionally. The ovaries require more stimulation to produce an egg (ovulate) which delays the onset of a true menstrual event. "Spotting" may be only related to areas of the uterine lining which degenerate slightly . If pregnancy is possible, get a serum HCG test to be certain.
