Premature Ovarian Failure?

I'm a 21 year old female and I've been having increasing problems with my menstrual cycle over the last year. My flow ranges between so scanty it's barely there, through to a heavy, clotting mess! I have previously skipped a few cycles, but in recent months, my cycles are gradually getting shorter (approx 23 days between periods now). I had my estriadiol levels checked in September and the result was normal (314 pmol/L in lutual phase), but I'm experiencing symptoms that are a lot like menopause (yes, even at my age!), like fuzzy thinking, hot flushes, drenching night sweats, cravings, etc I've also had some tests showing that I've had low progesterone levels (which can be a result of anovulatory cycles).

Is it possible that I could be having premature ovarian failure?!

Sounds similar to me, I have Ovarian Failure and have had it since 2007 I am also 21, I haven't had my period since 2006. Sounds to me like it can very well be Premature Ovarian Failure or Premature Menopause
