Melissa,



Pray this finds you doing good. I might have some news that may help. I very close friend of mine was having this same problem she is only 29. She went to base dr meny times we know how they don't listen at all. Praise the Lord one did listen and come to find out she had no calcium on her body. Now I know as woman we always take care of other before ours self. I never new how important vitimens are till I started look up on what they all do. So I say have them check you calcium.. .My friend is now doing great and taking extra because her body does not absorb it right not sure why,but she has stoped now going threw menopause. Pray this helps! God bless

Post a reply! I have had similar symptoms since my first child was born 17 years ago. When I went to the doctor (on a few separate occasions) each of them gave me a depression medication and whatever was available for IBS. My digestive system was out of whack too. I personally do not like medication as I believe it causes other problems in your body. I have been on Shaklee products for 15 years. I have tried other vitamin companies and found Shaklee to be the most reputable. I am 40 now and take several supplements each day. If I neglect to take them for several days my symptoms return. You might want to take a look at what Suzanne Sommers takes. Some think she is not very smart but she looks great, feels great, and all of her hormonal symptoms are gone. I prefer not to put synthetic drugs into my body. LMK if you would like a list of what I take. Good luck.

Your best bet is to go to your doctor for a final diagnosis, but I was 30 and had to have a complete hysterectomy,and deal with full hot flashes, and night sweats. It's not the end of the world, just like anything else you deal with them as they come. If you are done with your having babies it's really sort of wonderful not to have a period anymore. I does sort of mess with your hormones though, so be sure to see your doctor, because we spend way too much time diagnosing ourselves.

At age 29 I stop having periods all together, the Dr.s did nothing untill three years later when I asked, "when do I start getting checked for osteoporosis(however you spell it) since it runs in my family?" The Dr. then said to me, "Oh, well we can restart your periods, then we won't have to worry about that for now." So he gave me a med. and in less than 6 months my periods started to spontainiously coming on their own. So I stoped the med. and they are still coming on their own. Maybe this will help you too.

Hi Melissa,
I can see this is an old post :/ but I was curious to know if you found out the problem? I am experiencing the same thing with other symptoms like period pain for a week-two prior then some spotting and that's it. Maybe some weight gain!

I had the same problem. I went to the dr and he told me I needed a d & c. Well when he did the procedure he then found a thyroid tumor on my right ovary which stopped my cycle. This type of tumor is very rare I am told. After the removal of the tumor this caused me to go through the change at the age of 35yrs. Have the dr check for something like this. Hopefully this will help.

First thing to do is to see the right doctor,an Endocrineologist who specializes in problems that women have with menopause and all it`s symptoms.I stopped having periods at age 32 but didn`t find the right doctor until 3years later.Please don`t let that much time go by.When I finally found the right doctor,I already had bone loss in my lower back.Good luck!!

Hi Melissa,



I had a total hysterectomy at 24. I am now 31. I was on hormone treatment for off and on, as i hated taking them. I recetly started using Arbonne Hormone Balancing cream and have never felt better. It is amazing. I would first suggest before doing anything, that you get your hormones check. The best way is saliva ( YEAH no needles). I can send you the ingredents if you want to show your doctor. The product is natural and OMG does it work.

I am 46 now, but have had problems for about 8 yrs. or so, go to your Dr. & get a referral to a Gynecologist. Gynecologist told me Menopause could start at anytime in the late 30*s or early 40*s. Just had a procedure done: Balloon fill with warm water burn the line of the Uterus to stop bleeding all together or at least slow it down to a bearable level. So far so good. I have friend that is around the same age as myself, she went to a health food store and was given Herbal stuff instead of Hormone Pills. She feels great. She is also a Diabetic & did not want to have to take more costly medication. She suggested I go & get a Herbal Supplement, as well! Good Luck to all out there that have the Womanly problems!!!

I'm a little older than you at 45, but yes what we are both going through is called pre-menopause.

I agree with other posters that says go to your doc, BUT I went to 4 docs in 2 years who all basically told me I was nuts! I finally found a doc who told me I wasn't crazy, I could be having hormonal issues (not pregnant) AND drew the labwork to prove it. The FSH others have mentioned. Those levels can fluctuate though so if it comes back in normal range have them done again. I also did the bio-identical route for a while but now that I've changed my diet (cut out sugar and packaged/processed foods - eating more fresh whole foods) and exercising more, I feel much better.

I was going through the same symptoms as you the beginning of this year. I went to the doctor and found out I was 7weeks pregnant! But it is possible, going to the Doctor is the only way you are going to find out.

There are links between reproductive cycle symptoms & nutrition...one book that I have found useful is "Fertility, Cycles & Nutrition" by Marilyn Shannon. I've used it for lengthy/difficult periods (which can also happen during perimenopause).

The bioidentical test is only $150 and about $35-45 a month for the lotion. The test checks your Estrogen, Testosterone, Progesterone, TSH, FSH, DHEA, Vitamin D3 and D4. Bioidenticals are the natural hormones that we lose and it replaces. Do your homework, have everything checked. The hormone replacement that you get from doctors is synthetic and not personalized to your body. It may just be a thyroid issue, mine was low, but so are my hormone levels. I will keep you posted on my progress.

Talk to your family doc. and gynocoligist. Insist that they check your thyroid and blood sugar. You can most definately be in peri-menopause, but there are many test that can be ran to find out for sure. As far as the bio identical hormones...very expensive and most insurances will not cover. You may not even have to worry about hormone replacement. It could be thyroid or blood sugar levels.

I suggest you have your FSH levels checked which looks at your hormone levels. Also, have your thyroid checked because if your thyroid levels are too high or too low, it can cause these same symptoms.

I was also going to mention that Dr Phil just talked about this, this week. I'm sure there are links on his website.

I would look into bioidentical hormones. Check out Suzanne Somers books and you can visit http://www.iacprx.org/ to learn more about it. I am 38 and looking into it. Dr. Phils wife is on them too...it was on his show yesterday. Feel free to email me at cari@wedeliverwellness.com if you ever want to chat.

Well I can tell you from my experience, probably. I'm only 24, but I've has the surgery to go with it... but sounds like it to me.

Go to your doctor and tell him your symptoms. There is a simple blood test that can be done to check your FSH (a particular hormone) levels. You may also be able to buy an over the counter pee-on-a-stick type test also, depending where you are (I know we have them here in New Zealand) If you are beginning on the menopause track, your FSH levels will be elevated.

It is possible to be going through the menopause at this stage - but you will most likely go through what they call peri-menopause first. I started having peri-menopausal symptoms at 30 ish (and in reality probably body was warning me earlier - explaining why it took me so long to concieve my son) I am now 36 and symptoms have settled down -I'm still technically peri-menopausal, and I do get periods but have other issues)



Good luck, quite honestly it is a sucky thing to go through, but there are things you can do to make it easier - having said that, there may be other reasons for your symptoms. Go get that test... and my fingers are crossed for you. Let us know how you go. :-)

Might be peri-menopause... your body acts like menopause is occurring, but it's not. Check with your Doctor, if you haven't already. I went through similar symptoms in my mid-twenties. I was advised to take fish oil and flax seed supplements, along with progesterone pills. Went away with my first pregnancy, and has not happened again! Good luck to you!
