This is one of the first signs of perimenopause. Periods are regulated by oestrogen and progesterone, the fluctuations in these hormones that begin during perimenopause will cause fluctuations in your periods. Click here to learn more about periods.
From the questions you’ll hear in this video, you’ll realise that every single person’s periods are irregular in different ways. Some go months without a period while some get two periods a month.
By the amount of questions we received for this video, I can see that there is not enough information and knowledge about what different irregular periods mean. Should you go on the pill or take HRT? How do you know when your cycle changes if you have a Mirena Coil? How do you trust your GP when they prescribe anti-depressants for the moods that irregular periods give you?
