Currently I'm on CD39 with no sign of it. I had breast tenderness when I was due (used to be a regular 28 day cycle), but she never showed. I'm not on the pill, but there is no possible way I'm pregnant (and def don't want to be!). Between DH being sick and/or away, me being sick and the kids being sick, there's been no action happening.
I've had long cycles before, but that was before I had DD who is now 3.5. They went wonky when I came off the pill but a couple of months of vitex sorted them and we fell with her. But I haven't been on hormonal contraceptive for 12 months as it was messing with me.
I'm only 42. Surely this isn't peri menopause? My period has been a little wonky lately - few days early, few days late, super heavy one month, next to nothing the next. Google is just telling me I'm pregnant. But I doubt I'm the mother of the next J.esus LOL.
When do I worry and head to the Dr?

I have no advice but it can't hurt to head to your gp and get some bloods done to perhaps find an answer? Better than guessing and worrying?

Women in my family have been pre menopausal in mid 30's and going through it by mid 40's so anything is possible. Go to your GP if you're concerned. Stress can also delayv

My doctor has a suspicion I may be in the early stages of perimenopause even though I'm only 36 and my mum is only just going through menopause just now at 57. I'm like clockwork but over the past couple of years have had a few 45+ days cycles, awful PMS and terrible skin breakouts. She said perimenopause can start as much as 10 years before menopause (though not common). I'm not suggesting it's what you have, just saying it is possible.

I have actually wondered about it for a while. I haven't been quite the same since having DD, but when I went to get checked when she was around 18mo, my Dr just told me it can take a while for everything hormonal to settle.
But my libido def isn't what it was, my CM isn't what it used to be either and my hair didn't stop falling out when I was pregnant and I have thinning patches on my hairline just near my fringe (widows peak??), but wasn't sure that was enough while I was still having a somewhat regular cycle. I'm not having hot flushes or anything like that, and my female family members didn't go through it until late 40's. I just don't feel old enough to go "through the change" LOL. It's a wee bit confronting.
I'm (over)due for a pap.smear, so might bit the bullet and book in for that and get some bloods done and whatever other tests they do for these things.

The worst part is the PMS and general mood swings. Not sure whether that's part of the same package but that's really hard to deal with because I get so caught up in it. But the idea of menopause doesn't bother me in the slightest.

My hair never stopped shedding when I fell with DS who is now 6. It shed worse after he was born, and never really stopped since! It did slow down when I fell with DD, but I fill up my brush every week. I was scared I'd go bald, but haven't yet LOL.
