    I don't understand the results dawn but from what you are describing it could be sometimes with the menopause its hard to detect with the bloods you have to hope that they are playing up that day and thankfully mine were so I knew I wasn't going bonkers good luck with it and for hot flushes sage is very good and i also take a tincture called black cohosh but there are other things on the market too

    Hi

    I wanted to let you ladies know there is a dr on YouTube called menopause Barbie she is so informative and talks about everything menopause if only all drs could be informed my friend had her bloodwork drawn and her gyn told her she is close to menopause she skipped a period and thought she was done I had to tell her you have to go 12 consecutive months without a period to be in menopause her dr explained nothing to her she didn't even know that I am a nurse but I did hospice so this isn't my specialty but I have learned a lot about it and especially from the dr on YouTube she is fabulous and answers your comments hang in there

      Mine started in 2013 and had no idea what was going on. It progressed and at wits end. If this lasts that long, I'd rather rot in hell. Joking, well maybe not. I have no quality of life going through this BS

      I know how you feel the anxiety the aches pains my periods being irregular that I wear a pad all the time the hot flashes flushes night sweats before my period then the labor pains when I have my period lol I always had bad cramps since I first got it I'm cold then boiling from the inside the list goes on and on just hoping and wishing that one day they all go away my first hope is the period first and for most it just comes at the wrong times and is so painful I could then deal with the other bs symptoms
