I'm coming up to 48yrs and I think I've hit the menopause. My periods have always been regular and a standard 7days. In the past 6weeks I've been having little bursts of hotness - some days more than others and some days not at all and most significantly no period for 7 weeks . I've always been a bad sleeper so insomnia as one of the symptoms of the menopause means nothing to me. Weight gain also seems to be a symptom but as I have been following a strict diet since January I can't really on that either. Trying to get a doctors appointment at my surgery is ridiculous.
I've read up on the menopause on the internet the past couple of weeks but I was just wondering a couple of things....
1. I'm childless (out of choice) and wondered if it could have an effect on my symptoms
2. My mum breezed through her menopause - a few sweats but not much more. Am I likely to be fortunate enough to follow in my mothers footsteps for the first time in my life
