Lately I e had spotting for a few days then nothing for a few days then slight period. Right now it’s been about three weeks of spotting and I don’t know why this is happening. Is it just part of menopause or something else?

Yes it could be... you can get a blood test to see what your hormone levels are at. It could also be stress, anxiety. Are you moods a bit up and down more than normal? Do u have other symptoms like sudden sweating?

Thanks for your response CanuckAnon. Yes my moods are very up and down. No sudden sweating.

It could be peri menopause ... best to get blood test done to confirm... it could also be stress due to these crazy times and what else is going on in your life... just watch it, track it and let your doctor or nurse practitioner... the response below listed all symptoms as well so... take care... have a bath and try to relax... fill your heart up eh?!🤗😳

Ha yes. Fills yours up too ❤️

Starr, I do recall hearing that women are starting menopause at earlier ages.

Stress can effect us in many ways. If there are other signs you may well be on your way.

Hot flashes.

Breast tenderness.

Worse premenstrual syndrome.

Lower sex drive.


Irregular periods.

Vaginal dryness; discomfort during sex.

Urine leakage when coughing or sneezing.

Hope this helps :)


Thanks it does help; those are some symptoms I can look out for.

Hi Starr, could it also be attributed to additional anxiety and stress with Covid..?? I went through it in my mid thirties.

Hi All_alone This has been going on since before Covid but I have been stressed since as long as I can recall.
