Hi all, is there anyone out there who has experienced this. I have skipped a period. No problem at first, wey hey have they finished. Cant be pregnant as I have been sterilized for 16 years, but breast tenderness and nausea worried me so I thought I would try a pregnancy test...negative as I thought. But Oh for the past week I have had increasing tummy ache which tonight is so bad, I feel like im in labour. Could this be the menopause or beginnings of, Im 47.
At 47 you sure could be having peri-menopause symptoms. What kind of stomach problems are you having? Does it feel like cramps, sharp pains or gas pains? Last fall I started having sharp pains on my lower sides, turned out I was developing ovarian cysts. I had never had a problem with cysts before, but my dr. said they are pretty common in women starting into peri. Don't let the pain go on too long without getting checked. Could be changing hormones, but always good to rule out other problems. Good luck, Ann
I seem to be having the same thing as you this month. My period is late, and I have had PMT symptons for 2 weeks now with painful stomach cramps.
My stomach is so bloated I feel as if it is going to burst. For the past 12 months my monthly cycle has been getting shorter, Ive frequent headaches,
dizziness and tiredness. I have also started getting hot sweats. Maybe that's
just due to the hot weather. I dont normally sweat this much when its hot, but
it runs off me and my clothes feel soaking wet.
Have you been suffering with any other symptons? Let me know.
Hi anita jane, it was good to hear from someone having womanly problems like myself. At least I know its not just me. You dont say how old you are.....Yes I get the night sweats usually a day or so before my period is due, it is so bad there are rivlets running down my chest YUK!!! I dont mind getting older but this is no flaming fun. I just spoke to my sister and she is ten years older than me and tells me this can go on for a long time. so perhaps we can compare and contrast for years to come ha ha!!!!
