Irregular period, cramping. Had myomectomy. Suspect fibroids on pap exam. Menopuase , fibroid signs?

I just turned 47, my periods have always been right on schedule, ovulate around 14th, period starting day 28/29 no later or earlier ever, red for 3 days, light till day 4/5. Last month it was 7 days late, now started 7 days early, day 10 now and still have it. It as acting like it wants to stop, then starts again, still light cramping. I have had a Myomectomy 5 yrs ago, had 9 fibroids removed during my fertility treatments, last yr my last pap exam dr said she had felt the fibroids poss coming back. Is my changing period caused from fibroids - or - I'm hoping and praying NOT menopase signs?

DEAR SIR/MADAM

THE CAUSES OF IRREGULAR PERIODS MIGHT BE DUE TO
1. POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME
2. PREGNANCY
3. MENOPAUSE
4. STRESS
5. ENDOMETRIOSIS

POLYCYSTIC OVARIAN SYNDROME IS COMMONLY DOES NOT PRESENT IN THESE AGE GROUP PATIENT,
PREGNANCY IS RULED OUT
AS YOUR AGE IS NEARING MENOPAUSAL AGE IT IS POSSIBLE, I RECOMMEND YOU TO START CALCIUM WITH VITAMIN D3
STREES IS ALWAYS POSSIBLE

SO GET USG ABDOMINAL SCANS DONE AND LOOK FOR ANY SIGNS OF FIBROID UTEROUS.

THANKS
