Tired of hotflashes... Early menopause?

I think I am going through early menopause.
I am spotting quite often... does anyone else my age have this problem? If so, what do you ... it was easy when I was in the 20's and my period came very regularly... but now I find it troublesome to wear a pad or panty-liner... because I never know when I'll start "spotting". HELP!

Re: Tired of hotflashes... Early menopause?

I will be 38 in November. My Dr. is now convinced after a year of watching me go through hot flashes, a consistently heavier period and sometimes twice a month, and other symptoms that I am in perimenopause. My great grandma went through it and finished at 39, so it is possible for me. We tried the bc pills, but I decided to put the Mirena in. It has been only 3 weeks, but so far so good. No bleeding, no pain, etc. I am hoping this will lessen the bleeding occurences. My Dr. herself has the Mirena and said she virtually has only spotting for when her period comes now. I hope that will be my case. But, as far as the peri-menopausal symptoms, the Mirena will not take that away. We will have to deal with it through other means. I have a heart condition (SVT) so when I get my hot flashes my heart rate immediately goes up to 150, so I hate them as well. And she said it could go on for many years! Yuck. Good luck. Michelle
