Patient: I will be 44 in a month. Since November 29th I have had my menstrual cycle every 2 weeks like clock work. Since the start of my period at 13, I have been regular. The only change has been my husband got a dui on Nov.23. I asked my dr, and he said could be stress. My period has never been affected by stress before. Work is great, kids are great. I’m just concerned by the sudden change. It’s a normal period, no outrageous bleeding, lasts 4-5 days. Could this be the start of menopause for me?
