Hi I have always been regular all my life like clock work, always been heavy and periods have lasted 4-5 days.
But the last or so 7 months I have been so light and it has only lasted 2 days and then sometimes a light bleed again around the 14 day mark. Sometimes my period might only last one day.
I am 31 do you think it could be early menopausal? Before the changes - sorry tmi when I would poo I would end up blending from my vagina from the pushing. I got it checked and the nurse could see a bit of rupture or something but didn't follow it up - that was happening for a few months too but has not stopped but my period is almost non existent compared to what it always is like. I have had a pap as well - all good there.
Keep thinking menopausal because my face is getting a little hairy?? I have been really moody too. My husband thinks it could be stress related as 2 close family members are ill atm. Just so odd from always being so heavy all my life to barely anything - not pregnant - at the beginning I took a pregnancy test when it all started to change.
WDYT? Can people list any medical causes of what it could be - polops etc? I'm thinking about going for a MRI or something...

I don't know but think you should see a GP and describe what is happening and ask them to request some tests to see what's going on. I daresay they could check hormone levels etc. to see if anything is different to normal/menopausal.

Are you positive the bleeding wasn't from the rear with bowel movements?
Either way I would get both checked out. Hopefully it is nothing sinister

Very positive it was the front - it happened a fair bit so I got it checked out. My moods have been really high then extremely down - my husband seriously was thinking the other day I could be bipolar - very irritable atm - was thinking menopausal with the moods and period changes… will def go back to the dr it's always in the back of my head. Just wondering if anyone else has been through it.

I would strongly suggest you go to see your GP asap.

See your GP. But do ask for a blood test that includes thyroid levels. Light periods were one of the first symptoms I had of overactive thyroid.
