Hi, I just don't get it. My sister who is two years older than me has not had any problems at all. My mom had a hysterectomy so I don't know if she would have. I just don't understand what makes some women so much more susceptible to all these horrible symptoms. I have been going through this since I was 44 and I am know 50. Some of my friends look at me like I am crazy or they just don't get it. I sometimes wonder if they think I am making it up. Although my Thyroid tests are normal I still wonder if there is some correlation. What could make some people so different. I wouldn't wish this on anyone so I am so happy for anyone who gets through this symptom free. I Wonder why hasn't there been any studies on this, if they could find out why it doesn't happen to some maybe they could find a way to prevent it.
I know how you feel. It just doesn't seem fair! I asked a nurse about your question, why some women don't have all the symptoms we have? She didn't have an actual answer but she said that maybe some women have been functioning on low levels of hormones all along. I sure would like to know the real answer to that question.
It just baffles me. I just wonder if there is some genetic thing (which I know nothing about) or something different in our makeup. I sure wish I was one of you lucky ones. I have been to HE double hockey sticks and back a few times. I always had a regular period and hardly any cramps all through the period years. I had the bad moods a couple days of the month but that was it. this peri-menopause and meno has thrown me for a loop.
