43 yrs old and POST MENTOPAUSE????
Hey, This is my first post on here ever so I hope I do this correctly.
I have always had a very regular period, except when pregnant. I also have always been very fertile. I had my first child at 17 yrs old and my second at 21 yrs old. After that I had several miscarriages and one was an ectopic pregnancy with they removed my right tube and overy.
FOr about 10 years I did not use birth control and never became pregant. At 40 I thought something was going on and Iwas thinking pre mentopause, but it turned out I was pregnant. SO I now have three girl ( ages 26 yrs old, 22 yrs old and 3 yrs old)
Since getting pregnant at 40 my body has gone through so many crazy things ans really has never been back to my self since.
SO my mood swings, anxiety , depression, weight gain(even more after delivery at 40). Finally I got test to see what is going on and along with type 2 diabetes I am told I am POST mentopause... and I have the test results, all levels of three differnt test show I am post mentopause.
A year ago I was put on birth control pills, they were the seasonic version and after a couple of months as much as I dislike my periods I just felt not having one was not right for me . so I discontinued the medication. I never resumed my period and was given meds to make it start on several occasions over the past year. The last time the meds did not work and I had to take to rounds of meds but when period resumed it has been irratic which is a BIG sign for me who has always had clockwork periods.
I wonder if having a baby late in life caused this, I wonder if something else is going on and further test should be done...
I am shocked and worried and relieved all at the same time... can anyone give me any input or advise please
