I am 45.6 years old and I think I am in the throw of perimenopausal. All I need now is a menopause mentor as it is a new event in my life. I know that my af has shortened in the last 12-18 months. I used to be within 28-31 days with 31 days as the normal. I am now around 26-28 days. Last month, I got the usual af and then af appeared again 13 days later. I could not go outside without a pad. Last Wednesday, when I went ot the bathroom, I got bright red, lots of blood and this lasted for a day and then gone again. Now, 6 days after, I got spotting again. Is this behavior normal among perimenopause? I have also been dealing with so much stress lately, added with problems that my kids are giving to me.
