Hippi, you're not too young!!! You're right smack dab in the perfect age to start perimenopause. These are the years when we start to see changes in our periods. I'm already seeing it in me, and I'll be 34 next month. I have PMS that never seems to end, and my periods are much closer together, and last longer. NICE COMBO. These are the years hon!!! See your gyno and be careful with HRT. Estrogen can cause blood clots, and if you have APS you CAN'T go on it.
If you do get your hormones checked and they come back normal, don't get discouraged. Perimenopause can make our hormones fluctuate constantly, and a blood test is a snapshot in time. So your hormones might be all over the map, and when you get your blood tested that will be the time your hormones even out and act normal. (Murphy's law!) So it's important to get them checked twice a month for a while until you see a trend. Your gyno will explain all that to ya.
I hope you get answers quickly, because living like that is awful!!!!
