I was officially diagnosed at the start if this year as peri menopausal at 45 ( blood test confirmed) . I feel like I'm going crazy with all the new symptoms. NOT GOOD for someone like me who has horrible HA. I told myself that I would not take HRT but I'm starting to think I should! Ovulation is now almost as bad as a period with the headaches, cramping and the feeling of being unwell.

We somehow have to remember that our hormones are going crazy during this time which presents with multiple symptoms. Better said than done!

Hang in there.. You're not alone!

I would give ANYTHING to be in menopause right now.  I am 43 and am facing the decision of getting a hysterectomy due to huge fibroids that are causing so much bleeding that I'm anemic.  Count your blessings!  I would be thrilled.  :)

Beth, I have the same issue from fibroids.  Day one of my period is hell.

Crazygirl, what kind of ovulation pain did you get?  I'm 46 and often wonder when menopause will begin.  My mother had a hysterectomy in her late thirties so I have nothing to compare to.   

I just went through a painful month last month where I had pain on one side near my ovary for three weeks.  The ultrasound showed normal except for some pelvic fluid.

famv5 - I don't know about Crazygirl, but you totally described the pain and symptoms I had. One-sided pain and fluid near my ovary that initially occurred just during my period; then ovulation and my period, and then for 2-3 weeks bridging the two. My OBGYN thinks it's retrograde menstruation.  Anyway, the pain and fluid went away during my two looooong cycles.  (As did my breast pain and a bunch of other symptoms.) Like Beth, it made me look forward to menopause.  :winking0008:

Oh yes- I also have incredible, crippling pain when I ovulate.  Good times. 

Menopause, I'm waiting!
