I m 47. My periods have always been regular except the last couple of years sometimes I spot between periods. Has prob happened 3 or 4 times. My period was two weeks ago. I started spotting yesterday. Have had lower back pressure and lose stools. Tonight it s acting like a regular cycle with regular light blood flow. Embarrassed to say some odor. Right breast has also been tender last few days. Is this just perimenopause?
