Mom & Sis

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?"

Mom & Sis

I had my uterus and cervix removed five years ago, but not my ovaries, so it has been kind of hard to tell if I'm starting menopause or not.

Or it was, until the past two weeks. Between the hot flashes :hot: and the mental fog, yeah, I'm pretty sure of it now.

I talked to both my mom and my older sister this week and both of them said they were all done with menstruation by 50.

I turn 47 in less than two weeks, so I guess I am right on schedule.

I was done at 42. Don't remember any symptoms before my periods stopped, but I had them all for about 10 years after.... I always do things backwards! :)
