Dear customer

Thank you for coming back online.

The symptoms you have described of having spotting weekly for two months now can be due to perimenopause.

Women normally go through perimenopause between ages 45 and 55.Menopause officially occurs when you have not had a period for one year.

Spotting weekly since last 2 months is most likely because of this.

The treatment varies from estrogen and progesterone therapy,oral contraceptive pills,local (vaginal) hormone treatments,Antidepressant medications,plant estrogens (phytoestrogens, isoflavones.

Eat healthy & nurtrious.Take nutrious diet containing good amount of iron,calcium,magnesium,multivitamins.

So bot***** *****ne is that it is normal to have such type of spotting due to perimenopause before your menstrual cycle ceases completely.

Hope this helped.
