39's too young for menopause, right?

I'll be 39 next month. For the past 20 years or so, I have had very normal periods. I do get migraines and some PMS, but nothing too major. However, the past two months in a row, it's been different--heavier flow, cramps, and bigger mood swings. This is very unusual for me. This isn't early onset menopause, is it?

Re: 39's too young for menopause, right?

I would think the opposite would be happening...lower flow,etc. But it certainly could be early onset.

That's kind of what I thought, but it's weird that it changed all of a sudden.

I'm 34. Periods got out of control fast, with no warning. Time to go to the doc. I did, and turns out i have adenomyosis. Could be a lot of things other than early menopause. I'd definitely go to the doc. No one knows when something is "off" with your body better than you do.

Not what I wanted to hear, but thanks for the advice. I wouldn't say my periods are out of control, just weird for me. I think I'll see what happens next month, and if it's the same, maybe I'll get checked out.
