Irregular Periods

One of the earliest signs of perimenopause is irregular periods. Whether they last longer, appear more or less frequently or are heavier or lighter, we can help you understand your irregular periods.

Out of 300,000 respondents who have taken our Menopause Assessment:
years on average that women experience irregular periods

As women transition into perimenopause, the ovaries fail to release an egg. When that happens, there is no progesterone to stabilize the lining of the uterus. The uterine lining keeps building irregularly and eventually will start to bleed a little here and a little there. Often, a month or two later when your cycle works correctly and an egg is released, you may experience a heavy period. Heavy periods are a common symptom in perimenopause  for this reason.

Sometimes a change in bleeding patterns (whether it be time in between or heaviness of flow) can be a sign of something more serious, so a visit with your OB/GYN is recommended.

I've been working with Stasi for almost 18 months.  She has been fantastic and has truly helped me on my journey through this time of my life.  I'm certainly becoming a better version of myself thanks to her!
I look forward to my sessions with Katie - she is a wealth of knowledge in a variety of menopause health areas. She not only listens, she is engaged and supportive.  No matter what questions I throw at her, she always has great feedback, suggestions and has a become a crucial part of my menopause journey. I am so glad to have her as a sounding block / resource as I try to minimize and manage the overwhelming menopause emotions that are so foreign to me.
