Late period

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi all...

It's been 33 days since I had my last period. I have all the usual pmt symptoms just no period!

I've been documenting my periods for over a year now (on advice of doctor) and have noticed a definite change.

Some months my period comes early, some months I have 2 a month. This is the longest I have gone without having a period.

I have definitely noticed perimenopause symptoms, even though a male doctor told me last year that it's impossible that it's perimenopause if you're still having regular periods! Great help..

I've noticed a change.

Any advice would be great

Thanks

    Hey Dora, what utter nonsense. Ofcourse you can have regular bleeds and be in menopause. Our bodies can do crazy things at this time but to say you cant be menopausal just because you still just about manage to make enough hormones to bleed is insensitive, stupid and wrong. See someone else about it, hopefully someone with a bit more empathy and understanding of the condition. Hope this is of help to you. XXX

    Hi

     I am a nurse and some Drs just go by the book....it sounds like your perimenopausal to be in menopause you have to go twelve months without a period....perimenopause your periods can become irregular spotting they can become regular I went three months with out it then I have been getting pretty regular since....I saw my primary dr we even did blood work which came back normal but because all of the symptoms I had he diagnosed me being perimenopausal he said the blood work is a snap shot my blood work if he took it everyday for a month come normal then not normal...some Drs are very closed minded you will get a period in Peri it will start being different whether your late or skip a month spot you can have it longer then normal shorter then normal cramping I could go on and on I would look for another dr but I hear this complaint a lot I hope this helps

      Thank you for reply. It is very helpful

      I believe i' m definitely perimenopause as have noticed change in periods past year and half. Woman gp that I spoke to last year also confirmed that she thinks it is.

      I've noticed many other changes, such as hair loss and change in hair texture, weight gain, anxiety, asthma...

      Knowing what the cause is definitely helps.

      This whole thing can make you think you have some horrible disease and being a nurse knowledge isn’t power in this situation mine started when I was about 41 and it was quite subtle now I’m 49 and ughhh everyday something new and my dr and I discussed that we weren’t taught about perimenopause in school...my best description of peri is like puberty and pregnancy had a baby the symptoms are perimenopause the nausea that comes out of nowhere the pimples the palpitations the aches pains hair thinning periods all over the place moodiness sore breasts I could go on and on oh and allergies hot flashes then freezing night sweats exhaustion I just hope it all ends soon it just seems there is no end in sight I had skipped three months with my period now it’s regular or early ughhhh

    Im 42 and my symptoms started at 41 just like yourself. All the symptoms you mention I have experienced and Yes, I'd definitely describe it as pregnancy symptoms and some!

    I hope things get better.

    Thank you so much for your advice and sharing your experiences. X
