hello dear
shortening of menstrual cycle is called polymenorrhgia. and it coiuld be a symptom of hyperthroidism. hence repeat the the blood levels of TSH , T3 and T4. but since you are 39 year old, irregular period can be due to uterine causes . hence you are adviced to under go ultrasound abdomen and consult gynaecologist for further management.
take care
