Re: Early menopause - how to cope?
Hi, Emily -
I'm 38 and experiencing perimenopausal symptoms, so you're not alone. I've been dealing with it for the past year. I'm tired frequently from a lack of sleep (heart palpitations). I also am dealing with depression, mood swings, irritability, joint and muscle pain, low sex drive, and hair loss. My progesterone and testosterone levels are very low. I just started some progesterone cream called Oasis Serene, hopefully it gets me back on track soon. I really just wanted to say hang in there and know that there's other thirty-something's out there that are going through it, too. I certainly wasn't expecting it. It hit me like a ton of bricks. I didn't expect to feel any of this until I got into my forties or fifties!
