Are there any other 45 year old mothers wondering if their spotting instead of a period is due to perimenopause or breastfeeding?
I have spotting every 30 days, a breastfed 19 month old who eats complementary meals of course, and when my 12 year old daughter started her first cycle, it jarred me into the realization that I only had one period in the last 19 months since baby.
We have no family history of any reproductive cancers or anything wonky, so I'm not worried. My mother had fibroids which I do not have and had a hysterectomy for severe cycles at age 43 or younger.
I'm the oldest daughter, and had my children later in life -- 30 to 44, so I have nobody to compare myself to.
If not here, where is the best place to ask this question?
