Hello ladies. I was active until several months ago when I had to leave to take a much needed break from all things TTC, but I lurk from time to time. I probably will stick to lurking, as my BSC increases the more I talk about TTC and I've pretty much started the grieving process that I will not become a mother.
Over the past several cycles, I've noticed a few things:
my periods are heavier - I have to change my tampons more often and have upgraded to super size
my cycles have gone from about 29 days down to just 26 or 27 days
my cramps are getting worse
I get overheated easily during the nights (not every night, but several times) from O time until AF comes. I turned 41 in November. I'm assuming I'm entering perimenopause.
Anyone else experiencing similar changes? My cycle was so predictable and so I had my O time down to an exact science, but now I'm wondering if I need to start using OPKs again to figure out if the O time is changing along with my cycle length.
