It sounds like what you are saying is that you have had 4 months of very light period. In addition you had one period that was late. These symptons are perimenopausal symptoms and are common. At some point, you should be screened for thyroid disease. It is not an emergency, and is something you can bring up with your Dr at your yearly visit.
