Menopause...Pregnant......Stress????

I am 43 yrs old. Had my tubes catherized in 1994, 4 months after the birth of my last child. My last period was 11/17/14. On 12/2/14 I saw light pink spotting, happened the next day also. Today 12/4/14 it is not brown spotting. Feels like my period is coming again. Dec.5, 2014 started full blown period. What is going on???

Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.

There are numerous reasons for having irregular periods. . High level of stress, cholesterol, hormonal imbalance, chain smoking, dramatic changes in your life style may be some of the common causes of you irregular periods.


If this was the first episode of irregularity in the periods, then wait for the coming cycle and try lifestyle modification by reducing stress and decreasing cholesterol levels. But if the repeat happens, then consult a gynecologist and get yourself thoroughly examined to diagnose the cause of irregular periods and start with the treatment.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
