How Long Does Perimenopause Usually Last
How long can spotting last during perimenopause and is it normal? I have had 3 colposcapies in the last 10 years and they have all been normal.
Spotting @ 55: Perimenopause can cause lightened or absent periods with spotting. However, endometrial cancer also presents in the same way. Colposcopies are not the prime way to assess the endometrium as it looks at the endocervical canal and cervix itself and not the endometrium. An endometrial biopsy will tell you and your MD much more about why you are spotting if this is worrisome. ...Read more
I am going through the perimenopause and have had spotting for 17 days since the end of my last period. Is this normal? How long can spotting last?
Late period 3 days. Negative pregnancy test. But had sore nipples, nausea. Last cycle was only 19 days long. Is this perimenopause?
Period usually 5-6 days. Last 3 cycles has been 8 days. 32 years old had 7 kids, also started menses at age 10. Is this possibly perimenopause?
Longer periods: Abnormalities of your menstrual cycle can be caused by a number factors. Metabolic causes such as thyroid disease, diabetes and menopause are easy to screen with a thorough history, physical exam, and blood work. Anatomic causes exist as well such as uterine polyps, uterine fibroids and endometrial hyperplasia.

Im currently on CD62. Usually my cycle is 60. I experienced small spotting last night, but no period as per normal. Im very worried. Perimenopause?
Unlikely: Your cycles are abnormally long at 60 days and I think someone should look into that but you are very young for this to be perimenopause at 28. The perimenopause is usually the 5 years before and the 5 years after your last period (when you run out of eggs). Menopause before age 40 is considered premature and is abnormal. Check a pregnancy test and see a doctor to help explain the long cycles. ...Read more
Took prometrium for 6 weeks for perimenopause symptoms. Started out with improvements but didn't last. Now what?
Can my periods become irregular due to perimenopause even if i am on the bc patch? I am 43 years old & just had period a week early & lasted 12 days
