Cramping a week before period starts
I'm 48 and have not had any change in the length of my cycle (either how long I bleed or the number of days between periods).
My period has also not changed in quantity. But, in the last 6 months or so, I get frequent cramping on and off for a week before my period starts. Some days the cramping is so significant that I'll swear on my period.
Is this a premenopause sign? What does it possibly indicate as far as progesterone and estrogen levels go?
