In brief: Not necessarily

Perimenopause-the time before menopause brings all kinds of changes including irregular periods (too early or too late), heavier to lighter bleeding, mood swings, hot flashes etc.
Other cuases of irregular periods can be hormonal imbalances, thyroid disorders, stress/trauma, medications, and or anatomical problems. Talk to your physician for more help.
