Later, they got further apart and much lighter.
It took 10 more years for everything to finally wind down. So, 42, not unusually early to start!
Glad I wandered in here looking for spammers! Been having the headache/nausea before period and FREAKINGLY heavy periods for a few months. Scaring the hell out of me.
