unsure of what's happening
An_251153 posted:
I am 55 years old and I am in my 44th year of menustration. This past month my period was down right weird. It started out with light flow, very dark brown and had a slight odor. Then from there after three days it went to what I knew as a normal period. Is this the begining of the end?

Dear An_251153,
Indeed that is what it sounds like; however, the path from here on is still very variable; so do keep track of your periods.
Good luck,
Mary Janer
