Is this perimenopause?

Posted , 5 users are following.

I need reassurance. I am 9 days late with my period. Well, I bled a little today but I have had period cramps off and on for most of 11 days. I have been having some mucous discharge for 2 days now, some of it  discoloured. Lower back ache. Weak heavy legs. Feel emotional and Anxious. I’m 47 yrs old and haven’t missed a period in years so this is strange. It feels like my period “can’t start properly”. What’s going on? This hormonal backache and cramps is getting me down. 

Is it a menopause symptom or what’s going on??😭😢😢😳

And I struggle with health anxiety so it’s all made worse.  Thanks.

    It sure sounds like it. This is how mine started 7 years ago. I'm 47 now. It was just the first of many symptoms to come....blisters in my mouth, rashes, heart palpitations. I get so sick around my monthly that I dream of gross things and wake up nauseated. Hang in there. Your not alone. Its a wild not so great ride. Try not to get depressed. That's the worst part.

    Yes! I just had my cycle...15 days late! I keep track on an app just so I know what's going on. I'm 45 and started with these what I know now to be perimenopausal symptoms. I had hellish left breast pain (never just had the left breast hurt) so I started looking around. Lucky for me I found this forum to help calm my nerves, you are not alone! Keep reading the discussions on here it will really be a support for you! Good Luck! 😊
