    Hi Cillablack How can you tell the difference between a regular period and spotting period?

    My personal experience my periods are coming farther and farther apart but when it comes I bleed for 3 or 4 days max, but very light. The only time it seem to be heavy is when I use the bathroom... I have no cramping but then again before perimenopause I rarely cramped, mainly irritability and bloating. During perimenopause it seem as though now I have all the symptoms that I didn't have then , the aches and pains especially in my back.

    I can tell the period wants to come on but because of lack of hormones and its horrible. Anyway, I was just wondering if this could be a real period or spotting?  I thought spotting is normal during perimenopause even when you missed your period.  Are you having any othere symptoms such as pain?

    To answer your question, i've had pelvic exam,ultrasound , ct scan , no mRI or internal ultrasound

    This was done last year. Don't try to look too much into it , just normal testing.

      Mine is constant, although I missed 2 weeks spotting this month.  Period blood is heavier.  Spotting is just when I wipe myself after the loo.  On average I was getting 7 days per month spotting free but not consecutive days.  I don’t really know the difference though to be honest.  I’m just worried that I need a biopsy after having an mri.  When will these tests stop and will I need an operation?  Very anxious x
