I'm 48 years old and my periods are a bit irregular. I was due a period at the beginning of January and I didn't have one. I started bleeding 3 weeks ago, very lightly but gradually heavier. Now my blood is brownish but sometimes spotted with red. What could this be? I have cramps sometimes and I feel like I have cystitis as well I also had a Mesh operation on my bladder about 6 months ago.

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
