Menopause at 41??
Hi I am 41 and over the last few months have grown a huge tummy, gained 5kg (in fact it goes up each time I weigh myself), feel increasingly stressed and have a face full of spots. All of this is new to me and I am sure you will say eat less, take exercise, well..I'm doing that and NO CHANGE.
I do get hot periods where it feels like my whole body is encased in sweat and I can feel the heat and glow in my face and I have woken up a few times in the morning drenched in sweat..gross.
I had to have a hysterectomy 4 years ago due to a prolapse so I don't get periods and it is hard to track when I am feeling hormonal and whether it is my 'monthly' or not. I have my ovaries. I started my periods at the age of 8 1/2. Am I in menopause?? If so, what do I do??
