No period but still PMS ?

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi all you lovely ladies out there, hope your all doing as best as you can going the this crap called the menopause 😩

Just a quick question, Iv been going through the menopause for over 4 years now, my last period was 9mths ago ( yeah ) can any one say, do you still get the lows that we always use to get just before having a period ( pms ) ????

I don’t get any other symptoms like saw boobs, stomac ach, when your due to start a period, just 3/4 days of that feeling of low mood again, is that normal to feel like it’s PMS with out the symptoms ???  I’m on a strong dose of antidepressants at the moment that does work wonders, and I feel loads better then I use to do, just prob once a month my mood drops for a few days, then back to normal, just wondering if it possible that y your going through the menopause without the periods, you would still get low days as tho your just going start???

Any answer be great, big hug to all of you out there 🤗xx

    Yes, I still them every now and then even though I am seven years post menopausal. But not very often as I used to when I first stopped my period. I call it phantom PMS. Lol!

    I can tell you that when my periods stopped, I still got ALL the symptoms  (so bloated boobs, bloated body and depression).  Ironically, I went to the doctor for anti-depressants because of the PMT, went on them and pretty much stopped having periods after that.  Sorry it's not much help, you're much further along than I am so I'm afraid I can't really help.  I just think it's very likely.

    Have a good day - one day at a time....

    Yes, I do have pms and I even have aches and pains on my legg as if I am going to have my period but there is no period as such. As for the mood it certainly is all over the place. But it gets worse with pms symptoms. Big hug to you too. Take care&good luck with meno

      hoping that if I don’t have a period by next April I’m through this rubbish menopause, and my moods just stay the same with the antidepressants helping, thought they would of stop the low feeling of pms lol...
