no cycle for 5 months
I had the same thing happen in '08. No period from March to August...I went in for my annual pap in August and as suspected was told that I am starting perimenopause. A week later, I got my period again and it has been really heavy & about every 2 weeks since then...plus I get bad PMS symptoms...
But, the worst thing is the breaking out on my face and neck that I can't get rid of. They're just tiny little bumps and they itch on my neck. I have been reading some of the other postings about perimenopause and it looks like we may be in this crap for a long while. I will be 50 in a couple of months and would sure like to fast forward to get all this over with. Good Luck! SAM
