    Re: maybe menopause?

    To my knowledge, there's no blood test that will tell you if you're undergoing menopause, nsa. Generally, age and symptoms are used to make the call on that one. If you're in the right age group, and having symptoms that can be attributed to menopause, chances are that's what's going on. It's something you can discuss with your doctor. There are things to help you get through it without too much discomfort.

    Ladies, we all know how intrusive those men are! They even had to insert themselves into THIS!

    Re: Maybe menopause?

    Maybbe "womanpause" would be a better label

    I've heard it referred to as "mental-pause" (yep, there's "men" in that one too )

    Okay okay ... I know many good men who relate to people as people no matter what gender they are

    Regards menopause though ... I started early and the build up to "menopause" is officially "peri-menopause" these days, when all the symptoms happen (if they're going to happen). Official menopause has not been reached until one year after the last menstrual cycle. I don't know if menopausal symptoms still happen after menopause has officially been reached. I don't think i've had any, but could be wrong

    My Mom started early too, about 35 or so. I started a bit later than that, but now at 52 its been a few years since my last "cycle". I went through hotflashes and such for a long time but don't have symptoms anymore that I;'m aware of as related to menopause. I chalk everything up to medications sideeffects these days

    Re: Maybe menopause?

    Wow Kanadiana I didn't realize that it could happen so early. 35 is really young isn't it and you said that you started a bit earlier than that? Does it normally go based on the history in the family, mother, grandmother etc. of when you start. Hearing 35 kind of freaked me out. I didn't think that I had to worry for like another 15 years of so....

    Re: Maybe menopause?

    I think i'll stick with change of life.. i mean something has to change right..

    i hate these flashes or flushes... and i thought it was the meds.. just shows what i know eh?

    nancy.. i think kanadiana said she started later than 35... and i'm certainly well over that.. I think u have no need to panic just yet..

    Re: Maybe menopause?

    Thanks NSA I read Kanadiana's post wrong and I thought she said earlier and I was what the heck...that can't happen.....can it?

    Are you sure that it is not the meds? If it were me I would be thinking along those lines first....just in case it isn't "the change"...unless you want to change because as they say change is good....lol

    Okay so your name is going to have to change then from NSA to CNSA

    Can you believe how many times in this post I have used the word change. I think we may have to ban that word like we did with Spam

    Take care and stay cool 8)
