    Hi Bish,

    I went through menopause at 39, but had no real symptoms other than lack of periods and occasional night sweats. HOWEVER, you are at a much higher risk of osteoporosis when you have an early menopause and my GP put me on HRT and calci-chew pills to try and prevent it.....I still developed it but had a very strong family history and was also under-weight so was fighting a losing battle in a way !! Your GP should do a hormone test, just to establish that it is definately an early menopause and take further management from there....lots of prescription and alternative remedies are available to treat synptoms so don't be fobbed off. Good luck. Pauline.
