Yep, I think it's the right spot for me too...

For those of you who are just beginning this wonderful process, here we can narrow down the symptoms and ask questions like "am I starting perimenopause?"

Yep, I think it's the right spot for me too...

I'm 38 and have been trying to downplay the symptoms for a year or so. But, now I'm convinced that this is EXACTLY what's happening.

I look forward to talking with you all :)

There are lots of us who started early, Marcielynn. My periods completely stopped when I was 40 or 41, so I HAD to be going through peri at 38! At that time though (15-16 years ago) no one was talking about this stuff.

If you can find out if female family members also went through the change fairly early, that would be a hint. Also, if you smoke, that can bring it on a year or two early. ( I smoked for 43 years....have stopped since June 1 of this year)

No smoking for me.

I asked my grandma and she said hers stopped at 52. I need to call both my aunts on my mother's side and ask. My mother is gone so I can't ask her :(

You probably should schedule an appointment and have a checkup, letting the doctor know what you've been experiencing. With all the information together, they can find out what is the likely cause.

Let us know what you find out, ok? Hang in there!
