Re: Is it menopause or???confused
Ok, ummm..this person wrote that they still have their ovaries...so there body is still producing hormones. At your age, it is very likely that you are beginning menopause. It does come with strange body effects and side effect. Headaches, nightsweats, hot flashes, facial skin irritation, lack of concentration, confusion, memory problems and being grumpy are all part of it. The good news is it eventually evens out. There are several products that you can get over the counter at pharmacies or vitamin stores that ease the symptoms. The best bet is to go to your doc, have him diagnose you and prescribe hormones, but if you can't afford that, then go to the pharmacy and ask about over the counter hormone products.
I had to have a complete hsyterectomy when I was 36, they took everything including my cerivx. Over night I was thrown into surgical menopause and I've been on hormones ever since, and things are pretty well controlled.
Good luck and take care,
