I just had a baby in march. I'm a couple of days late with no signs of cramping. I am having hot flashes throughout the day with nausea, water retension, confusion and fatigue and moodiness. Could i already be having signs of menopause this soon after having a baby? Or maybe i'm pregnant again. I'm 35 and i know menopause could come anytime, right? Thanks!
It is possible that your symptoms are due to peri-menopause but they could also be due to your hormones being totally out of whack after having a baby. It can take many months for the hormones to sort themselves out and reach normal levels again and since the same hormones are in play for both pregnancy and peri, you could well get many of the same symptoms.
You might want to check with your doctor since he can run a panel and determine if your hormones are really out of whack.
BTW...love your user name....it's so totally gaelic.
