Light, but longer period
I am 45 yrs old. my periods have always been very regular. In May I was a week and a half late. (never have been late unless pregnant)Then it only lasted 4 days instead of regular 5. Then in june period started on time but mainly just spotting. Usually I am heavy and cramping for 2-3 days. This time it is very light just enough to know it is there. and I am on day 8. Could this be the onset of menopause?
Yes, you are entering the menopause transition. Enjoy the experience. Each one is unique.
