Dear bones,

Spotting CAN be normal (and most often is) in early menopause.  Some women have spotting, some have heavy bleeding, some just start skipping periods.  In other words, each women's perimenopause and menopause is individual.  

Spotting can also more rarely be a sign of a more serious condition.  Best to talk it over with your trusted health care partner (I always say that a woman should be FOLLOWED by an MD; not led.  It's best when you can work in partnership with your physician or nurse practitioner in matters regarding your health.) 

Good luck - let me know how it goes.
