I’ve had mine 2 days to 6-8 weeks at a timto nothing for few day to week or months at a time since I was 12…I’m almost 30. My mom and her sister have had that too since their early 20s and they now mid 50s and doctors refuse.

I did that for about four or five months.then it just stopped and I havent had a period since. 6 months since last one dr thinks that was my menopause. I’m 46

Baby you are dropping eggs… the baby timer is working over time… so if you want another baby do it!
Because time is running out… if it’s not heavy bleeding no worries but if it’s heavy see your Dr. asap

Sounds like you’re probably peri menopausal. I’d see your OB.

That’s peri menopause and you would want to talk to your doc. They may put you back on a birth control to try to get it to slow down or not come at all. Sometimes they just monitor it. But itll be a bit before it stops (at least that’s what I’ve heard from those I know going through it)

I’m 44 I just went through all that so I went to my OBGYN and had a hysterectomy almost 2 weeks ago

I’m 49 and I’m as normal as ever :confused:

Go see your primary care doctor. There might be something going on.

You can get an ablation and it helps

Periods are good they help keep you femenine and if periods stop dont women start getting more masculine ? Or is that a myth ? personally I’d want my period but I could understand how it could annoy someone for sure

Might be a sign of the change
