Does anyone have cramping........

.....while going thru menopause? I haven't had a period in over a year and a half but there are times that I feel bloated like I used to when I was ovulating and also have even felt a little crampy.

Just wondering and trying to figure out this thing called MENOPAUSE!!!!!!

Re: Does anyone have cramping........

I also haven't had a period for a year and a half and I do still get the bloating. In fact, I still feel like my hormones are cycling. Every two weeks I get fluid retention and the same symptoms that I got when I had periods. The other two weeks, no fluid retention. Still have hot flashes during the retention weeks and feel more tired. Also, the indigestion flares up. The other two weeks, I have more energy and the aches and pains go away. Seems strange. Do you experience something similar?

I haven't had a period in two months, I'm the small one here on the totem pole, but I am so bloated right now and have had cramps on and off for the last two months. I even get that ovulating feeling too.

Yep twanger and ainfante.........sounds like the same here. It just seems that the only thing we're missing is the period itself. Of course we women get the added benefits of hot flashes. Isn't it wonderful!!!!
