I started skipping periods 3 years ago (maybe longer) first thinking it was stress and that I had lost too much weight but then the mood swings started and they made my PMS look like kittens playing! I seriously needed to be muzzled!!! Hot flashes, cold, hot-horrible, this has gone on now for years. I went for over a year without a period at all-nothing not even spotting then one day I got it...UGH...that was the only solice I had through the whole thing, thankfully I had stuff on hand! BUT I had (still) have times when I think I’m going absolutely crazy, things that I would normally had brushed off would just drive me insane, I would also LOVE to know when does this END!!!??? I know it’s probably different for everyone, I’m 48 yrs old and when this started I thought I was too young...boy age sneaks up on you fast and furious!
Has anyone else suffered through these same symptoms? At what age did they start? How do you deal with it? Does replacement hormones help (estrogen)?
Thanks for any advice!
