is it possible for a 16 yr old to be going through menopause??
I've been spotting, having hot flushes,acne, headaches and insomnia. I haven't had sex since Nov. neither have i ever had unprotected sex...so being pregnant is out of the picture.

  • Are you taking any medications or birth control pills? Do you have an eating disorder or any medical problems? This isn't menopause, but it could be hormonal as you are 16 and a lot of bodily changes occur at this age. I will suggest that you speak with your doctor about these symptoms.
