Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment whether your altered period pattern and reduced periods and symptoms that you describe are due to hormonal changes, probable menopausal onset without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. If you are worried, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and hormonal analysis to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and evaluation results) would be started to help you control the symptoms and regulate your periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
