Hello goldengirl, I just recently posted a whole long story of what happened to me during my last period on the Female Forums. Basically, it went nuts! I am in my mid 40's so I know things are going to get a little crazy from here on in, but I had gotten somewhat concerned. Also, my period has been changing in duration as well, sometimes longer, sometimes shorter - have you had these type of symptoms? anyway, you think the progesterone cream has REALLY helped? They had recommended that to me on the Female forum too, so I think I'll try it. I will look for the name you recommended, and pass this info on to a friend of mine who is experiencing similar problems. I guess it's the age. well, thank you for the info.!!!!
