Changed menstrual pattern. Reduced menstruation. Had taken aspirin before periods. Is the change due the medication?

hi, I am a 47 year old woman whoes periods last for about 4-5 day. This month my period was very thin and bright red, and it did not follow my normal menstral pattern that I am used too. Normally I will bleed for 3 days stop on the forth day and return the next day and it ends. This period I did not soak any pads I have stopped and then have somespotting unexpectedly. Started this cycle on 14-15 Aug should I be concern. Prior to my period I had took some aspirin and I wonder could this have effected my cycle?

Hi, Aelainem,
Thanks for query.
As you are 47 years, this might be due to Pre menopausal symptoms.
At this age hormonal imbalance start taking place resulting irregularity of period,flow might be less or more etc.
Wait for 2-3 cycles and observe the pattern.
If require you may consult your Gynaec.
Ok and bye.
