am I going though the change?

Since May '12 I've had my period every 43 to 69 days, I'm on day 67 right now. Before May I was getting it every 26 to 31 days. I'm 47 and have a history of uterine fibroids, but now I'm getting this discharge that is heavy (almost like a period, but without the blood) Is this part of going though "the change"?

Dear Marajsky,
It isn't clear what the discharge would be; discharges aren't classic perimenopausal type symptoms. I'd wait to see what happens after your next period (which is likely to come sooner or later!)-if the discharge persists, I'd check it out with your health care provider,
Good luck,
Mary Jane
