am I perimenopause?
Hi everyone, I am 50 yrs old and had a tubal ligation 15 yrs ago. Lately , the last 2 months have had no period. Before that have had heavy bleeding.Is this the start of menopause?I even went as far to take 3 home pregnancy tests, all were negative.I am really worried about this.i have 3 grown kids plus grandkids. Please anyone with info, please !

Re: am I perimenopause?
i think the fact that you have had heavy bleeding, have now missed 2 periods and are 50 years old points to you being in perimenopause - don't you? the liklihood of you being pregnant are so far removed as to be almost negligible, although not 100%.
maybe if you do a little research and find out all the 35 symptoms, you'll recognise some of them, and realise that perhaps you've been in this phase for a few years. just because you've only just missed a couple of periods doesn't mean your hormones haven't been decreasing.
there again, maybe you'll be one of the lucky ones, your periods will stop and that will be that!! good luck .
