Thanks for your query.
WHat you are experiencing is definitely menopausal transitional symptoms.
The altered menstrual bleeding and hot flashes are typical.
FOr the urinary incontinence and smell, please have a urine checkup as you are prone to infections at this time, as hormonal levels fall.
Hormone replacement therapy might help you, see your doctor for estimation of LH, FSH and estrogen levels.
Take care.
