In brief: Perimenopause

Most women have a period before menopause that is a transitional time and can have some or all of your symptoms.
When they begin before 40 it is considered early, but not necessarily abnormal to have this happen in your mid 30's. Ask your doctor for an exam to reassure yourself or to discover if anything is a problem. You may just be a bit avant garde. Best wishes.
