    Hi Brid..... what you described sounds very much like early peri which usually last from 5 to 7 yrs. Just keep going to your gyn/ob for all your test and let nature take it's long course. Good luck sweetie I know it's rough I have been going through it for 6 yrs now and have fibroids on top of that.... Have opted to have a hystrectomy because I'm so close to menopause and have cervical cancer....May God bless you through your journey......

    Hello Brid, don't worry about your english, I'm italian and my english is horrible but the nice ladies of this board seem to understand me very well
    Yours definitely sound like peri-menopause symptoms. I've been having them for the past four years and I hope to be getting close to "the other side". Hot flashes don't know seasons. It can be snowing outside and yet you will feel sweatting and hot as if it were the warmest day of the summer. Be patient, cuddle yourself, don't ask your periods to be on time (they will start to come at random, last at random, be heavy or light at random) and when you feel discouraged or in need of an embrace, come here.
    Hang in there baby!
