Re: What is the EARLIEST you all started symptoms of perimenopause?
I was in my mid to late 30's when I began having "mild" symptoms. When I turned 42 that is when I began experiencing the full affects of hormone imbalance.
In my 30's I had occasional irregular periods, aches, pains, pms that was elevated to pmdd, mood swings, and mild hot flashes. Then I went through years of chills about 1-2 weeks before my period. When I say chills I'm talking about teeth chattering, shaking, quivering, deep bone freezing chills.
I'm now 46 and after over 4 years of full blown perimenopause I'm finally beginning to settle down. I'm still taking compounded progesterone and dhea cream which has made a wonderful difference in my life. Thank God.
