Perimenopause – the time before your actual menopause – is a time when your hormones begin to shift. Periods tend to be lighter or heavier than normal and spotting may also be noticed by the patient. Please note that all of these symptoms are completely normal. But if the bleeding is profuse and lasts a lot longer than average, then it might be a good idea to schedule a consultation with your doctor. You must also get yourself checked if your bleeding starts after sex or more frequently than every three weeks.
