I am asking if this is a symptom of the peri menopause!

Period is two weeks late and have they have generally begun to become erratic. Had pms type symptoms one week ago and thought I might get a period but no sign!

Feel really puffy around my stomach (belly button area) , heavy in the bottom (sorry if tmi confused), and sore in vulva.

Is this peri menopause?

Help and advice needed?!

I have a GP appointment next week but am feeling so uncomfortable sad

Fluid retention is part of PMS and has been known to be for a long time. It's not part of peri but if your period is late then you are in extended PMS if that makes sense. I don't think you need a dr unless you have a lot of other symptoms and want to discuss HRT but maybe to be on the safe side you need some medical reassurance?
