Just wondering how long you had from the start of hot flashes to your last period. Know it varies alot.
In AIBU for higher traffic.

I would have answered this with wit and wisdom if it wasn't in the wrong fucking section.

My message disappeared. I haven't seen a period for about 18 months, the hot flushes came after.
Nothing says menopause more than a 47 YO woman stripping to her vest in a cafe in the snow.

A GP friend of mine once said that every woman could write a book about their menopause and that non of them would match - it's that different for everyone.

It varies for everyone. So far I am having few symptoms except weight gain [sigh] and occasionally hot moments. But nothing too bad.

Thank yuo Pag. I am not finding my hot moments too bad. It just the insomnia and mood changes that are getting to me. Think I am really trying to establish whether these symptoms are at the start or end of peri period. I have had disrupted af for about 2 years and I am late this month. Just wondering if this is likely to be it!

I've been having hot flashes during the week before my period is due for the past 8 years or so....periods now erratic (missed 2 in the last year) and very light...less than 24 hrs long.....but they are still there!

I hope every month that this will be the first of many missed cycles but not as yet!

Oh, I'm 44 this year.

You have to remember that not everyone suffers the ill effects, I do not even know when mine was, tho I must have finished it by now as I am 56.
Periods just gradually stopped in my late 40s and that was it.

I am 42 - having hot flushes, intermittent periods, insomnia, night sweats, mood swings - especially I get absolutely enraged from time to time, for hardly any reason at all, when I have always been quite a calm and placid person. Also, lack of energy and lack of concentration. I am pretty sure it is all kicking off and do mean to go and see the GP. I did buy some special vitamins but keep forgetting to take them.

No hot flushes yet, but do feel extra warm at times. My periods have decided to appear more regularly and be far more heavy, which is a thrill, I must say. The Gp is referring me to the hospital for investigation and I will be demanding a merina coil grin

What really cheeses me off, though, is that my mother had no symptoms until she was 51.

I am a (very young delusional) 46.
