I am 46 and asking myself if I could be going through peri menopause. My periods are much more heavier than ever before, I start spotting around day 18 just very slightly and start period between day 24-26, 2-3 days are incredibly heavy sometimes with clots than one day spotting . My hormones seem to be all over the place and during my period and during ovulation I seem to experience quite a bit of joint aches and stiffness, anxiety which then leads into low mood. My anxiety is health related so all these aches and pains make me feel like There is something serious wrong with me. Once the hormones calm down I become my old self. I feel like my body is out of sync. Then when period is over, I feel normal over. I don't feel like I want to get into medication so would love to find some natural way of dealing with the symptoms. Those this sound like peri menopausal? If so, how long does this phase last? My mum got through menopause at 54. Can I control some of these symptoms through diet or some natural products? I would be grateful for any advice. Many thanks x
