Hi

I am 42 years of age, stop my period last month had 5 urine and one blood test to see if pregnant but all negative was having period in nov and in december was spotting for 13 days, and in january this year missed entire one month. Had quite abit of hot flushes mainly at night that i can't sleep.  My doctor did do hormone test and nothing showed up that i might be going through menopause. My whole body aches my belly has been a little bloated and just really confused now. i am waitng on scan appointment should be with me this week in the post, not sure what they will find now so scared, if i am menopausing because i do not have a child and its all me and my husband have ever wanted. Please can someone give me some advice as i am confused and unhappy. Thankyou all of you for reading this hope you are all okay and well. Thanks Joanne.

    Well Joanne you're not in menopause until you've gone 12 whole months without having a period. You may be skipping for any # of reasons.

    Have you been to a fertility Dr since you and your husband want a baby?

      Hi Lotti

      Not seen fertility for a while now but did see one for the 6 I.V.F's weve had over two years in 2010 all through to 2012 never managed to get pregnant lost embroyos round day 14. The only doctor i see is my own gp at my surgery, she is doing her best to see i scan shows up a pregnancy or wheather theres an underlying problem just have to wait on my appointment letter which i still have not got due to N.H.S being streched at the moment but should hopefully be in hospital next week with some luck. Thankyou Lotti

      Hi Tammy

      Thanks for your message i am waiting to have ultrasound scan for one to check to see if pregnant and if not pregnant to see if anything is stopping me starting period. If everything is ok with scan and nothing showing then doctor will do blood test for my hormones and see what it throws up. I am now 24 days late on a period and always been on time i am fed up of waiting for scan as really want to know whats up. I will chat to you anytime tammy thankyou.
