Has anyone else experienced this and shud i b worried? I haven't haf a period for over 6 years. Please help!!!!

    Hi Wendy

    me too, my hot flushes in the day have shot up, from none to up to 20 a day in the last four months, i had them with night sweats in early peri, then none..

    i am aged 50 and been in full meno a year.. natural route ...

    i live in southern spain and mine increased with the summer heat here, hot flushes as you know are the way we cool down aswell in menopause..

    do you live where it is hot ..

    i dont have breast tenderness though .... last had breast tenderness when I had my last period a year ago.. none since ..

    do you have well woman checks ? 

    i had mine last week... colopscopy, smear, vaginal ultra sound, and 3D breast scan..

    i saw everything on screen, was told i was deffo menopause, and breast scan fine.

    do you take HRT could it be that ? 

    best to get checked wendy ...
