So is this now early Menopause?

I'm 38. My last 3 periods have been "weird" - two were very early, my last one was very late (I'm never late unless pregnant) and two times I've experienced cramps (never had cramps since I was 12).... Also during the time my period decided not to arrive, I had serverly sore breasts, tired, cranky and just feeling out of whack.

So, is this the start of menopause or what? Really I already feel like I'm climbing the charts here at 38 and don't want to experience this already.

I have two close friends also my age and have experienced the same things- except they were three months late on a period!

Can others relate?

Re: So is this now early Menopause?

covergirl38: Yes, it is probably perimenopause. It can start as young as 30. Try and get Dr. John Lee's books "What your doctor won't tell you about menopause" and another one on "perimenopause". They're full of info. The sore breasts are a sign of estrogen dominance.
See if you can get your gyno to check your hormones and if he won't do it see an endocrinologist. There are around 40 symptoms of ED. Look it up. There's lots of info on these boards. Look around.
