Have I gone through Menopause?

In August, 2004, my periods stopped suddenly. I don't exercise and I wasn't going through stress. (I don't think I am over weight. I actually weigh 11 stones and I am 5.8 inches tall.) After 4 months without a period, or pre-menstral pain, I explained to my uncle who believes in alternative therapy and he gave me a concotion which he assured will lead to my periods flowing again. One month after taking this medicine, my periods started but I ended up bleeding heavily (changing sanitary towels every hour) for 4 weeks. I had to go to my doctor in panic about the excess bleeding. I was treated and I had a normal period for 6 months. Thereafter, nothing again.

My doctor thinks there is nothing wrong, but I have only just turned 41, and I keep wondering whether I have already gone through menopause.

  • Sounds normal stuff for over 40. What is a stone? We do weight in pounds, or kilograms.Menopause last for a while. Did you get night sweats too?I would get some blood work done, an internal ultrasound etc and make sure there is nothing else.

  • Thanks for the reply. My weight in kilos is 69kg. I don't get night sweats, but I get feverish occasionally.

  • I suggest asking your doctor check your FSH levels. I am 31 and just got the most horrific news of my life. I am in menopause. Yes me at 31. No warning signs..nothing. I was told the news over the phone and told to call an infertility doctor. Simple as that. No empathy or sympathy. UGH!This is devastating to say the least as I so want to have children.Ask your doctor to test you. And don't take no for an answer.
