Menopause?

Can anyone help me .... I am 48, have had not so normal periods. Now I have stopped for 41 days. I have been having hot flashes bad 24/7 hits when it wants to but normally get it everyday. Some cold sweats also. I am not sure if this means I am into full blown menopause. I have been in pre-menopause for years now. Any help on what to do? Doctors tell me to get on the pill to get my periods back to normal but I really don't want that.

Re: Menopause?

Hi Cajunmama,

It sounds like full blown peri to me. I have gone for over 60 days just to have a real bad period after that. I did notice my hot flashes got a lot worse during those 60 days. Remember, menopause isn't official until your periods stop for at least one year. Black Cohosh seems to help me with the hot flashes.

Hope you find some relief,
Missy

Re: Menopause?

Thanks....I have been reading on everything here. Would it hurt for me to start on fish oil ? Do think it would help with the panic attacks I have had for years?

Hi Cajunmama,

Fish oil is good for your heart. They are loaded in Omega 3's. I take fish oil everyday but I don't think they will give you relief from panic attacks.

Hope this helps,
Missy

I do not know about panic attacks, but I increased the amount of fishoil/omega pills I was taking when I was depressed after my sister's death. I did this because a friend said she got off all her depression meds by taking them. She was in perimenopause at the time.

I originally was taking them for joint pain but as mentioned by others it is good for your heart too :-)
