I just turned 37, and for the past fews months I have been experiencing symptoms that appear to be related to perimenopause. My mother did start menopuase in her 40's and my her mid 40's she ceased havbing periods. Lately my periods are changing, where they used to be regular as a heartbeat. I'm on Birth Contrl pilss and have been for years, My periods now chnage from heavy to light, I sometimes miss a period and i have had a LOT of breakthorugh bleeding. I assumed it was my BC pils and requested a change in brand. However, in the past month I statring getting night sweats, hot flashes and my mood are crazy! Emotionally I feel like a menatl patient that is off of her med's. It sound funny but it's the best way ZI can describe it. I cry when nothing is wrong, I'm extremly agitiated over the smallest things. I schedule an appt. with my GYN but it's not for a few weeks. Everyone thinks I'm crazy and they tell to just relax and sip some wine. Something is wrong or happening! Can it be perimeopauseView Thread
