    worried about periods. Could it be perimenopause

    I am 40 years of age and for the last few months I have been noticing I have not been feeling my normal self both a few days before and during my period. About 2 days before I start to feel absolutely exhausted and this continues throughout most of my period and I am also feeling sick with loss of appetite. I am normally quite regular in my cycles but the last period was thin and scanty and I felt tired exhausted throughout. It stopped and then came on again 5 days later but very faintly. For the next two and a half weeks I went on holiday to Turkey and felt absolutely wonderful - lots of energy and I did alot of walking and my appetite was fine. I had a night flight back and I started to feel exhausted for about 4 days which I put down to jet lag. My period then started and I had bad cramps, nausea and total exhaustion. (I am into day 2 at the moment and I feel so tired and not well in my self). I have also been having some symptoms of irritable bowel around my period as well.

    so with tiredness, feeling unwell and bowel upsets around about my period - could this be the start of perimenopause. my mum and her twinhad their menopause at 39 and I started periods at the same age?

    I never experienced such crippling tiredness (and insomnia) and feeling of unwellness during periods before. Can anyone help please?
