In brief: Menses

Many women have changes in their cycles after age 35.
They can be heavier, shorter or you can skip them. Often times this is due to ovulation issues. However, its always important to rule out other things too like pregnancy, low thyroid, hyperprolactinemia. Your provider can do this with blood work.
