    Default Early menopause

    I’ve been ignoring symptoms for a long time, can’t deny it any longer. With family history anyone else in the same boat? I want a 3rd but didn’t want to start for another 18 months

    Yep me I’m 41 and would desperately love a second child. I know the odds are stacked against me and it’s heartbreaking.
    What symptoms have you been experiencing?

    I’m only 34 hot flushes, insomnia, unexplained weight gain, foggy brain, moody, incontinence (all of which I blamed on working full time with small kids) and now irregular periods.
    Need to go to doctor and get tested

    Oh gosh, that’s even harder to come to terms with when you’re so young. I stared taking HRT 7 months ago, it definitely helps with symptoms. The worst for me is the emotional side having to come to terms with the real possibility not having another child. I feel so much guilt as I know my daughter would adore a sibling. I waited too long to try again as I just wasn’t ready and for a while I thought I was one and done.
    Definitely go to the dr and get some blood tests so you know what’a going on.
