No Menstrual Cycle For A Year
At 48 okay: At 48 it's normal to have some increased fluxuations in your cycle. The average age of menopause is 51, so you're getting closer. Many women in late 40's begin to miss periods.

Hope that helps. ...Read more

Yes but not a cause: The act of sex is not going to change the menstrual cycle. There may be some bleeding associated with sex the first time, but that is not menstrual bleeding.

Is having decreased menstrual blood flow than normal for two consecutive cycles a cause for serious concern for a woman of 24 years?
Not necessarily: The amount of flow depends on the balance of estrogen and progesterone . The more estrogen the more uterine lining grows and the more you have to bleed off. Progesterone is produced after ovulation and makes the lining stop growing and get mature. If ovulation is early you will have less time for the lining to grow. ...Read more
