    is it normal

    am 41 and a year into pre-menopause and i understand that my menstrals are whacky now they start early, they are late sometimes, i have even skipped 2 months back to back, then they go regular for 3-4 months,then go whacky again. But my menstral this month if that is whatcha call it is the weirdest one yet. I was suppose to start the August 2, but didnt see anything til the 10th and it was only spotting for a 2-3 hours, then i stopped for 3 days,and the 14th i spotted for 2-3 hours and stopped for 2 days, then the 17th i started spotting again then stopped and started spotting again. so frustrated just wish it would go ahead and start or just go away for this month. Is this normal or should i be concerned and go to see my dr aboout it.THANKS IN ADVANCED kimmiec_73
