Go and get your ovary pain investigated asap.

Maybe an ovarian cyst?

Actually, even though I am a chronic insomniac I'm in the US. Let's see, never had a cyst so I'm trying to remember. I think they can try medication? I had a boyfriend whose sister did have one removed but it wasn't an emergency type situation as best I recall.

Is there a nurse's line you can call?

Sorry I'm not more help...

Pippin, sorry I didn't mean to imply that it could be an emergency thing, just wondered if you could talk to someone who might reassure you.

How did it go?

If you had an ovarian cyst that had burst, you would still be in pain now adn it would not affect your periods, so rule that out.

it may be that none of your symptoms are connected.

Many of the signs you mention could be due to low thyroid- so ask them to check your thyroid.

Just mention absolutely everything, and the GP might think of something.

You should have at least:
internal exam
blood tests for thyroid and hormone levels
tests for PCOS (poly cyst. ovarian syndrome)

maybe you should also consider counselling or CBT or life coaching ( former may be available on NHS) to help you cope with your stress levels.

can't see any possible connection with your periods, tbh.

Don't panic- there could be zillions of reasons for no periods- not just early meno. Wait til you have your blood test and see.
I am post meno but have never had any emotional symptoms- I have always been moody, bad tempered and hard to live with, lol!
