I've had my cycle two weeks since december, is this the start of menopause? I just turned 40 and have been in peri-menopause since my early thirties.

In brief: MENOPAUSE AT 40
This could be the beginnings of an early menopause.
Check with a gynecologist who might order some hormone testing.

In brief: Doctor can evaluate
The average period lasts 4-7 days.
It is not normal for a period to last for two weeks. You might consider seeing a physician for an evaluation of the problem. When a woman is approaching menopause, her menstrual cycle length typically becomes shorter. This could lead to more frequent menstruation or irregular bleeding as well.
