      My cycle is going crazy, I know this is normal but the question is:
      Should I get on the pill to regulate it or just go with it.

      It started one day, finally stopped 10 days later - FIVE days passed and here it comes again for another 10 days - it was horrible.  

      Has anyone had this happen?  Any replies will be greatly appreciated.  WHAT DO I DO?  

      THANKS EVERYONE!

      JoAnn

        • I’m in perimenopause as well and my periods have been all over the map. I’ll have one for a long time, I’ll skip 2 - there’s no rhyme or reason. I’ve been on bioidentical hormone cream for a few months and it’s helped a lot. I had horrible mood swings, though and needed something to help with that. It regulated my periods and brought me back to having a very light one every 28-35 days or so. I only use about 1/16th of a teaspoon of cream twice a day. Very low dose but very effective. I get mine from a naturopath but I know that a lot of gynocologists also prescribe them.

        • I dont know if this will be much help for you, but here it goes. I always had normal periods and was always ontime. About a year and a half ago, I started bleeding...same thing on again off again. Then it started and didnt stop! for two months! I had an endometrial ablation.  Which greatly helped with the “flow“.  Your Gyn should do a blood test to make sure that nothing else is wrong.
          Good luck!

        • Hi..  I have been regular all my life too, and recently I didn’t get my period for 2 months..  I knew I wasn’t pregnant, so I went to my doctor last week and I just had bloodwork done to check my hormone levels and thyroid...  I would go to your doctor and have your hormone and thyroid checked..  The doctor will be able to tell if you are in the beginning stages of menopause..  Isn’t it so much fun... LOL...  I hope this helps...

        • One time, 3 years ago, I didn’t have a period for nearly 5 months; and then started right back on a normal schedule.  But overall, I’m all over the place.  I’ll skip two months; maybe three months and then have a period.  I’ve also had alot of phantom periods, meaning I have all the symptoms, but nothing happens (no period).  It’s all so confusing.
