Menopause Support Group

Menopause is the physiological cessation of menstrual cycles associated with advancing age. It normally occurs in women between the ages of 45 and 55, when the body begins to slow and stop the production of eggs, estrogen and progesterone production decreases, and menstruation diminishes, eventually stopping altogether.

    Well, I had a week of feeling normal. I am having cramps, nausea & intermittent anxiety. Just don't quite feel like myself. I am 2 weeks away from when I am supposed to start my period. Ugh!!! Oh, feeling like I need to pee all the time, especially at night when I am trying to fall asleep. Does anyone have any suggestions for that one??

    I have been going through menopause for about a year. Within the last couple of weeks I feel like all I want to do is sleep. I feel totally exhausted. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, what did you do for it. I slept most of the day on Saturday.
  • I am 48 years old and am going into an early menopause. On month 4 of no period. Wow! Things are changing really fast! First of all I feel pregnant without being pregnant. Full breasts, bloated abdomen, achy joints, exhausted. Now sex surges! I had my first one last night and one this morning. And I just formally learned about them from pulling down info from the web after feeling that what...
  • After spending the last six months of my life thinking I was dying of some mysterious disease I learned that the " internal" tremors I was feeling were actually due to estrogen deficiencyand simply part of my perimenopause. In Jan 2009 I began to suffer severe heartburn, panic attacks, insomia, sweats etc. One day I thought I was having a heart attack and began a long journey of trying to figure...
  • Hello. I have been reading up on Peruvian Maca for perimenopausal/menopause relief. It is a root that I'd like a radish. It is supposed to balance your hormones naturally. It is not plant hormones like soy. I am allergic to soy. Has anyone tried Maca for menopause symptoms? It is supposed to help. I am thinking of trying it but would like to hear if any of you have tried it & if you had success...

  • Hi, ladies! Although I know there is a 34 symptom list out there for us to compare our woes to, I thought that maybe I'd share the ones I've been experiencing. Maybe this will not only ease my fears a little more, but it may ease someone else's, too...after all, misery loves company....We will survive this, here goes:Flooding (done)Erratic periods (still occuring, last one was Easter, lasted 2...

    Cramps

    5
    Hi, I've been in menopause for seven years now. Not too many symptoms for me. Had hot flashes for a little while. But recently started having cramps. And no period. You'd think it would go away. I'll have them for a few weeks and then nothing for months. I can't find any information on this. It's not even listed as a symptom!! Any information anyone has would be appreciated!
