    Hi Lesley, yes this is yet another symptom! It takes time but it will pass as all the other symptoms pass. While you have each or all of these, you feel as though it is forever, but stay strong and there is light at the end of the tunnel. I promise, as I am emerging from the other side and mostly feel normal again. Take care, Susan.

    Yes, it is most definitely a symptom! My abdomen has puffed out so much that I have literally looked like I was about the give birth! It comes and goes, but not with any pattern that I can discern.

      Hi! I'm new here! My LH level is a 23.3 and my FSH is a 17.8

      I was told I'm almost post menopausal and I'm only 39 but I've had my tubes tied for almost 15 yrs. now since I had my youngest daughter. I just want to if I'll have anymore periods and why is my stomach so puffed out now?! It hasn't been this size since I was three months pregnant with my youngest daughter. (I showed much more with her than my oldest daughter.)

      Aliska, I have had the morning sickness thing, but I usually notice it either during PMS or ovulation and not every month. But when I do get it, I too don't go too far from home. I don't get it every month thank goodness. I notice it the most if I am over tired, over stressed, too much going on in my life. I am working hard to maintain a better balance, and try to get as much sleep as my peri body will allow (some nights I just wake up a lot to pee or too hot....and can't fall back to sleep). Don't let it get you down. I push through as I remind myself when I was pregnant and had morning sickness I still got up and went to work. I find if you have to stay home, just stay busy and often times it will subside.

    Hi Lesley, YES! I have always had what I would describe as a nervous stomach, but I find since I started getting peri symptoms, my digestive system is more fussy. For example one time I can eat something and it doesn't bother me, but the next time I eat it, I bloat, or get instant indigestion. If I have to be somewhere I make sure to eat a couple hours before in case I get some sort of discomfort.

    Hi - Thanks so much for your message .. Have slept through the morning and not had that awful nausia . Drinking ginger cordial that helps . The anxiety is an issue along with low mood ..

    Us girls don't have it easy ..

    Unfortunately there are different stresses going on which doesn't help either ..

    Thanks so much for your contact 😉
