I'm 52 years old and started a little bleeding yesterday 2 weeks before my period is expected.  Should I be concerned?

      Hi Theresa, any things possible if your in peri, cycle all over the place, intermittent bleeding is quite normal at this stage of life due to the fluctuating hormones

      Don't know your circumstances if your on HRT etc but make an appointment with your doctor and mention it if the bleeding dosnt settle

      I wouldn't be overly concerned though

      Take care xx

    hi, you haven't said whether you have any other symptoms of peri/menopause.  I would suspect that you are entering it now as changes in periods are usually the first sign, but then again, there are no set rules, as the ladies on this forum would tell you!  

    You probably need to go to your doctor and get a check up because this may be the first sign of perimenopause.  This did happen to me a few years back and I brushed it off, as I wasn't experiencing any other noticeable symptoms.  I should have really taken notice at the time, so do go to your doctor and be prepared for peri-menopause early, maybe other ladies on this forum might join in and give their views.

    take care

    I had something similar and did mention it to the Dr, he wasn't concerned and felt it was probably an ovulation bleed, I'm still here 8 years on so I guess he was right!

    As we enter peri periods can be affected, I had bleeding spotting on and off for a month when entering menopause. I did get things checked out just for peace of mind though, but like i said, periods can go haywire at this time x
