I went into early menopause at 39yrs. I had very light regular periods all my life, usually about 3 days, but when I was in my 39th year I started spotting for about 5-6 days so went to Dr. He sent me for a scan and took bloods. Results were no more eggs and not producing estrogen or ostrogen. From that day I never had another period. Soooo weird (and have to say all my friends are not too happy with me
I started to slowly gain weight over the next few years and I have been struggling to lose it ever since!! I have recently had my 50th and would love to hear from anyone else in this position. I didn't have too many symptoms of menopause either, a few flushes was all. I'm sure that my metabolism has dropped to zero!!! I do not have many calories per day and am trying to do more exercise. Walking and weights.
thanks for any help
