I am 53. My periods have been sporadic for the last few years,but I haven't had one in 5 months. Recently, whenever I've had sex, I have lightly spotted for a few days afterwards, and recently, my breasts have become tender. Are these more signs of menopause? Pregnancy did cross my mind, but there have been no other syptoms, such as nausea, frquent urination, etc. Panic time??
