I'm wondering if anyone else has some sage words of wisdom having experienced this barrel of laughs....well tears and erratic mood swings.
Now I'm 43 and I don't know what's normal and what isn't and to make it worse no one wants to talk about it. A year ago I finally came to terms with my cycle and accepted it after 28 years. I found out about menstrual cups and got a few, thinking finally I've found the best thing ever.
Now I barely get my period. A few months ago I had a semi heavy flow. Since then it feels like I'm about to get my period on a daily basis and for the past 6 days have been spotting. It's annoying and just adds to my erratic moods that go from weepy to angry in a second. I also started a new job early May so it's been a stressful time. Trying to come to terms with what my doctor calls perimenopause and doesn't think there's any issues. But I think it's weird and bizarre and can help wondering why no one talks about it. There are so many symptoms I'm not prepared for. My mother isn't around so I can't talk to her but from what I remember her flow got crazy heavy. And she experienced haemorrhaging.....so fingers crossed I don't experience that.
Is anyone else suffering in silence? I never thought the day would come when I would wish my period would flow instead of this strange spotting. Anyone found something to ease the syptoms effectively?
