Hello. I will turn 40 in a few months and for the past few months I've been noticing some strange symptoms with my cycle. I missed a period entirely in December. January was about a week early but fairly normal as far as symptoms and length/intensity, but this month I was about a week late and it appears to be more like spotting than an actual period. I have been battling daytime sleepiness and moodiness for the past few months, but I haven't really noticed any of the other hallmark symptoms typically listed in association with perimenopause. From what I've researched, missing two or three periods in a row is cause for a doctor's visit, but I was curious if anyone has any experience with this type of symptom pattern. I'm not exactly sure when my mother went through menopause, but I know she was in full menopause before she turned 50. I am definitely not pregnant and I'm not experiencing any other symptoms of concern. Would 39/40 be considered out of the norm to already be experiencing the cycle changes? Thanks.
