    Menopause??? Or other trouble?
    homerdallas posted:
    Hi. My question is that I have always had a pretty regular period. It has become really irregular since last month along with sweats, loss of concentration. I told my daughter about my symptoms (she is a nurse) and she said it wasnt uncommon. The symptom I am most concerned with is the vaginal bleeding.It is not a huge amount of blood but enough to be annoying. I have never had this before.I am not soaking thru or anything. I just need to find out what it can be. I am otherwise a very healthy active person.I am worried it is some other problem rather than perimenopausal symptoms.I have an appointment in a couple of days with my doctor so I just dont know what to expect.I dont know a lot about this end of things when it comes to menopause.Do you think it could be realy serious?
