Have you experienced early menopause?

Has anyone experienced early menopause? Any tips/tricks that helped anyone going through or has been through menopause? Natural remedies? Yes, I can ask a doctor or google, but I’d rather hear from real people, what they went through, what helped, etc. since everyone, everybody is different. I’m not even 40 yet and I’m a little freaked out, not expecting this until later in life. Thank you!

Not really sure what you can do but my grandma was 35 when she started menopause… Wish she was alive to ask her what she did. But there are menopause relief supplements you can take! Sorry I’m not of any help!

My mother started menopause in her early 30s. Her doctor put her on birth control to stop it :woman_shrugging: I cant remember how well that worked! I’m now in my mid 30s and afraid it will soon happen to me.

Yes I experienced early menopause at 45. I decided to tough it out and not do hormone therapy. While it then proceeded quicker. I have some regrets about this as I did not realize how your brain actually changes with the progression. I have experienced brain fog, osteoporosis and am now diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Not sure if that’s a result but I have many of the symptoms of fibro at 63.

I’m 35! I had a partial hysterectomy 2 years ago and my ovaries haven’t worked right sense. I have 3 small children and finally started hormones and medicine for depression. I have felt like my body has turned on me. I have felt crazy for 2 years. The depression medicine and hormones are helping. My thyroid is also low now and I started medicine for that too

CBD oil has helped with my hot flashes, limiting caffeine & alcohol helps also.

I’d go to your gynecologist and make sure that’s what it is. I’m 52 and just started a few symptoms

I was 42 my Dr said they don’t do hormone therapy anymore because it was causing harm. I had a hard couple of years in ok now. I enjoy no periods, no pms, it’s nice.

I started menopause at age 42 and finished at age 46. I’m 53 now. I did it naturally.

I still get hot flashes but they are way better then the pain of endometriosis.

Gabapentin for hot flashes has been a Godsend for me. St John’s Wart for mood swings. Black Cohosh is great but a lot of ppl cant tolerate side effects.

I am still going through it bc I had a total hysterectomy when I was 31. I started off doing hormone therapy but If you miss one dose it messes with your moods a lot plus you also have all the other potential side effects of taking birth control. I now don’t do any hormone therapy bc my body doesn’t do well with birth control. The worst thing for me is the hot flashes & I eat a lot of ice to keep those at bay but it doesn’t always work.

Are you sure you’re not pregnant, Because I thought I was menopause,But come to find out I was pregnant

I thought I was so I had my hormones tested and they were normal. I am treated for anxiety & depression. I was having crazy hot flashes and mood swings. I mentioned this to my doctor so if it was premature menopause ( I’m 36 ) it could be treated with something hormone based.
