43 woman irregular periods and cramps

Hi there, I am writing to you because I have been having either my period or spotting for about three weeks now. I'm 43, will be 44 in a few months.This is not the first time this happened, it's happened two other times in the past three years and then went away for about a year. Periods are usually pretty regular every 26 days. I cycled at about day twenty six this past month, then spotted for about eight days a few of which I had a strange odor. Then at day twelve I started another heavy period. Today's day three of that, I have had cramping almost right in my center not left or right. My vitamin d levels are optimal . I get tested. I'm also on armour thyroid and a compounded testosterone creme. I did recently join a gym and start lifting weights for the first time about three weeks ago. Wondered if this could cause this? Also I have a fibroid that was the size of a pencil eraser at last check And hadn't grown. Any thoughts ? Does this sound like perimenopause ?and what can I do ?
