Hi and thanks for query,The symptoms you mentioned might be because of hormonal imbalance and as your periods are getting lighter and estrogen is on lower side you might be heading towards menopause. I would suggest you must visit your gynecologist to have thorough examination and investigation so that if you need hormonal replacement therapy it could be started.Please do leave a positive rating for the service.Wish you good health.
