Why does my period stop, start, then stop again?
I'm a 30 year old woman, and sexually active, and lately, my period starts heavy and thick, then lightens up, stops, then starts again. What the hell is wrong with my junk under the hood, so to speak? And, is this a possible sign of menopause? And i'm having weird food aversions as well.

You should be a rapper with a title like that.
Go to a doctor and have yourself examined. I'm 35 and that's happened to me, it wasn't menopause and it wasn't pregnancy, it was stress. It may well be nothing to worry about in your case but I'd get myself checked out just to be on the safe side.
Stress. If your not on BCP you can try that, it usually helps with regulating the hood. Only a Dr. will know for sure though.
