First mine got so heavy, it made me anemic, which makes flow heavier.
Then they got further apart.
I went thru this really annoying time where I spotted for like 3-4 months, UGH. Was I ever happy when that was over.
So it was heavier, spotting, less frequent, done.
The two changes I had, was in my skin ...got facial wrinkles and nasty skin on my forearms and legs within the first year... and my hair's gotten darker a lot darker and a bit thinner.
I also developed autoimmune hypothyroid disease at the same time, which isn't uncommon. So some of these symptoms of my perimenopause were overlapped with thyroid disease.
I'd suggest getting that checked next time you're at the doctor's especially if you can't maintain your weight despite diet and exercise.
