    Hi Pamela,

    I am hoping to hear similar reports from post women 😃

    I am only 43 but the last few years it's been 21 day cycle but very light. Lately, still around 25 days and the same spotting then light days you are experiencing. I don't even have bleeding a full day. I intend to make another gyno appointment soon because this just seems abnormal for my age. I have read smokers go thru menopause a few years earlier though, I reluctantly quit 9 months ago hoping it would help symptoms.

    I don't understand why some of us have it so bad and then other women seem to be having a great time in their 40s.

      10 years 😦 I have had odd stuff since my mid 30s and now think it was all hormonally related.

      Unfortunately there is very little information out there on what smoking does to hormones. I am guessing it affects stuff since it supposedly lowers testosterone in men and affects libido, probably does something to women but who knows.

      None of this makes any sense, I just keep hoping that those of us that have a really bad perimenopause will get some relief post.

    Yes, odd light cycles and weird feelings through body.

    From what I read, I think the light period is low progesterone. It seems we only produce progesterone if we ovulate and as our eggs age, we don't ovulate every month. So we can have low estrogen but if we don't ovulate can have symptoms off the charts of both low estrogen and estrogen dominance due to low progesterone . And if we ovulate sometimes, it makes it hard to treat the symptoms because they can change month to month.

    Basically it all sucks.
