I keep hearing your peri and menopause should be like your mom's. Yet my mother didn't even start menopause until her late 50s and has a full head of hair, no fibroids, dermoids. Yet I'm 47 and getting ALL the peri symptoms already, shedding large amounts of hair, weight gain, giant fibroid, terrible anxiety etc. So WTF????? I eat super healthy since 18 I have been Paleo, wheat and sugar free, yoga etc while my Mom eats whatever. I think I may take after my father's crap side of the family. But so sick of feeling like I'm defective because I'm NOT taking after my mom like I'm supposed to. She also has the most beautiful perfect teeth and I just cracked a molar I may lose. My doctor said oh most women don't shed hair. Oh great so AGAIN I am defective and have ALL the symptoms despite trying to eat healthy etc my WHOLE life, while everyone else in my family and friends are fine.
