Perimenopause resurfaced with a vengence at about age 35 or 36. (most likely even sooner but I didn't understand what it was.)
I'm now 42 and it's really a non stop health management pain in the neck!

growing up i NEVER i mean NEVER had ANY periods.i was correction i am abnormal.anyway i started having hot flashs when i was still in high school and boy i had seizure after seizure after seizure just about everyday [url]http://www.earlymenopause.com/ubb/frown.gifluckly[/url] i got warnings so if i started feeling dizzy i'd run as fast as i could to the health room then BAM i start seizing.i never want to turn back time to my teen years they were a nightmare.
i was dx at 19 or 20 i think it was 20 cause i don't remember being in school when i was dx.course i don't remember anything my memory sux.i am 23 now.the cause well the gyn couldn't find a cause (story of my life)i don't have a cause for my epilepsy or early menopause,my life is a mystery.now my mom and i both beleive that one of my aeds is the cause (anti-epilepsy-drugs)here is why.1)i was born with epilepsy,so i have been taking meds for 23 years now.2)as i said before growing up i never had a period.the med i think that caused this is lamictal.it screams early menopause,the gyn said that my aeds didn't cause early menopause well i say that's BS.BUT there are alot of causes for early menopause so i could be wrong.but i doubt that i am.take care [url]http://www.earlymenopause.com/ubb/smile.gif[/url]

Just found out today I am in full menopause at age 41. Started getting hot flashes a few years ago and just over the past 9 months or so my periods stopped. Was talking to some of you guys a couple of weeks ago in the chat room ; I will stop back in and say hi again.

(I am glad to be back on line after disconnecting computer 2 weeks ago to move!)
I was diagnosed in 2002 when I turned 41, after my periods had stopped for over 3 months...found out at that time that my mom had stopped around age 42.
I had been seeing an RE since 1999, my hormones were fluctuating but I was ovulating sometimes with low estrogen levels. RE put me on synthroid, but I was not diagnosed with a particular thyroid disorder until recently (I have hashimoto's thyroiditis). Since I was ovulating she was hopeful I would conceive. BUT my hot flashes started about 9 years ago, along with an initial bout of symptoms. They subsided, but then came back and hot especially bad starting in 2000, with joint and back pain, less regular periods, nausea, and a lot of other stuff on the list, and I didn't get pregnant. So it looks like I have been in peri for quite some time (all through my 30's), and now each period could be my last.
Not sure if it has to do with my auto-immune thyroid problem, but it's likely since my mom had the same thing and that may be why she went through it early.
