... I'm wondering if anybody else has similar symptoms, and if this might be perimenopause. I kind of feel too young for it to be perimenopause (I'm 38, and my mother didn't hit menopause until around 54, but I'm wondering if the fact that I've never had any kids might have made it happen sooner). This all started when I was about 34 or 35.
The most noticable symptoms are that... (4 replies)

... Hi Josephinus,
I posted yesterday about taking progesterone for similar symptoms. I started to have lighter but long and drawn out periods as well but now am skipping them completely, only spotting on and off without a pattern. I'll also be 49 in a few months.
