    Default Cycles getting shorter and shorter.

    I stopped breastfeeding July last year and got my first period a few days later. They were 33-35 days apart. Then I got a short one, then a long one so I started tracking in Jan, and they are getting shorter each months, this last one was only 24 days!

    Dr Google says I am perimenopausal! I am 29!?

    Any experience/thoughts/advice?

    I've only just weaned, but my cycles have been crazy since AF returned after my last baby. Really irregular with cycles ranging from 22-30 days, and days and days of spotting before AF started properly.
    My GP diagnosed low progesterone and put me on Primulet tablets but I ended up not taking them at all, but have weaned DS and gone on the pill, hoping that will help even out my hormones. I'm closer to 40, but my GP didn't say anything about menopause. Is there any family history of early menopause?
    I'd be seeing a GP about getting your hormone levels checked.

    No, I don't think so, most of my family had babies later in life. I had an appt for a pap smear today but af arrived, so I may just go and ask about iy
