Menopausal at 26.. What is my body playing at?

Ok so.. Back story. Diagnosis of Endometriosis in 2013. Was placed into a chemically induced menopause (Prostap injection) in January. All was fine, pain went from a daily 6/10 to niggles occasionally. No periods since January.

I was started on HRT at the beginning of September - I lasted 3 weeks. HRT left me in pain again and mentally quite unstable. I stopped HRT by the end of September.

In the last few weeks I've done nothing but sleep. I feel totally drained, washed out, bloated, sore boobs and now a raging cold. I've also had spotting after sex at the weekend...

Is this down to the menopause or has my body decided to throw something else into the mix..?

I'd POAS if I were you...

I was hoping it might just be the injection playing havoc with my hormones.. But being pregnant has definitely been playing on my mind recently. Especially as I did nothing but EAT all weekend - ravenous would describe my appetite.

When I was pg but didn't know it, I went to pizza Express with friends. I had dough balls, a pizza, a dessert and two fizzy drinks (I never drink fizzy drinks); then I went home and had some toast... In hindsight, I maybe should have guessed there was something else going on.

Oh really..? I like my food but even my husband commented on what I put away yesterday... Breakfast alone was coffee, 2 breakfast bars, 3 satsumas and a toasted teacake.
I know when I was pregnant at 18 (ended in miscarriage) I was so bloated, so early on, my jeans wouldn't do up - which is the situation I'm in now.
Was just hoping it might just be menopause playing havoc...
