Menopause? Stressing

Hi all. I am 31 and came off the pill almost 10 months ago now. My cycles have been irregular lasting between 29 and 24 Days. My last couple have been 24 and 25 Days. I am also finding it hard to lose the extra 10 pounds I have gained and have been suffering acne, migraines, and terrible pms. I also have little to no sex drive. Does this sound like it could be menopause? Is it likely at my age? Stressed as I am wanted to try for another baby over the next few years. Any thoughts would be massively appreciated! Thanks

Do you have any family history of early menopause? If you don't, then it's most likely not that. Maybe tell your concerns to your dr and get some tests? Alternatively, you can by cheap menopause tests for home, it's like a pregnancy test but checks for high FSH levels, could be worth doing to put your mind at rest

No it doesn’t sound like menopause. At your age it is also unlikely (but not impossible). Stay off doctor google.

Metabolisms after 30 tend to slow down. Cycles change and you’re well within the normal range. Hormones can be quite powerful...

Sounds like you have low progesterone actually with the short cycles, not the menopause. Speak with your GP. X
