    Hello sunaina

    I had primary ovarian failure and so was undeniably in peri for most of my life, before full menopause last year aged 43. No doctor can tell unless they carry out blood tests. I never go for the 'too young' argument tbh, I've been too young for everything I've had and I've still had it. If your symptoms indicate that you may be in peri, or if you need peace of mind, then push for the tests. Good luck xx

    Hi suniana, I will be 42 soon. At 40 years old, I stopped the birth control pill (after 20 years). Within a couple of months I had all kinds of symptoms. Got sent around in circles for 6 months being tested for everything. Once my periods became irregular, the migraines, fatigue, dizziness came worse. Although I was missing periods and my blood levels were showing in meno range... My dr was too stupid or stubborn to listen to me, I changed drs. I believe I started peri earlier, but the pill was hiding the symptoms.

    Most drs learn very little in med school about menopause and they know less about perimenopause. They learn menopause is a year without periods, hot flashes and a dry vagina...pathetic. Any other symptoms and we are labeled as anxious or depressed. I never got treated this crappy when I was pregnant. There are some smart drs out there too!

    At the very least, make sure your thyroid and routine physical and blood work is current. You have the most knowledge when it comes to your body. Best of luck!

    I am 39 ( I'll be 40 in July), Dr. diagnosed perimenopausal 4 months ago. I had been told for almost a year that I was too young for perimenopause and kept fighting with them. Finally they did more blood work and confirmed I was right.

    It's not common, but it's not impossible, especially if your mother started early and if you have no children (both are true for me!)

    And make sure they do blood work several times. hormones fluctuate like crazy during peri, so it can take several times and a comparison between those times to get a solid diagnosis.

      hi Julee I am also 39, turning 40 in July. I have been hit by peri a year ago, anxiety and palpitations were first symptoms to show up, followed by many different symptoms. I have daily tension headaches, ear ringing, off balance feeling... what blood work did they do to confirm perimenopause? My ob/gyn did check my hormones last year in April but he didn't think it's peri. l asked to repeat blood tests after few months but he refused. I have gone to so many doctors and did so many tests, MRI, ultrasound, all came back normal. It's crazy how hormones can cause such a havoc in our lives. I wish it gets better soon. What are your symptoms? Are you taking anything for your symptoms?

      My periods started becoming irregular, and then HORRIFIC anxiety. Like nothing I've ever experienced before. And I also experience the tension headaches and off-balance feeling. I then skipped 4 months of periods and she tested my hormones and my progesterone was waaaaayyyyy low, so she determined peri. It's sort of like a comparison game. Low progesterone doesn't necessarily mean peri, but when you compare it to the other levels of hormones you can tell whether it's off. like, progesterone should be low during certain parts of your cycle, but then the other hormones should be a certain number, too, and nothing matched up.

      I, too, have been to a million doctors because I thought I was losing my mind or had some major illness, and many docs agreed because they refused to believe it was peri. But after everything came back fine, finally I got my answer.

      The GYN gave me progesterone, which I will start taking March 1. I will let you know how I fare! I could have started it Feb. 1 but I was in the middle of moving and didn't want to deal with any possible side effects. Good luck! If you want to chat about all this, please feel free to send me a message!
