I'll be 48 in a few weeks and I've never had any hot flashes yet. My cycles are like clockwork up until the last year or so. I would start spotting for a day then about 3-4 days later full force nature would kick in with a vengence. Another time I started spotting for a day and nothing for almost a week. I haven't any exams in 17 years but am finally going for a physical and mammogram in a couple weeks from now. I just haven't felt comfortable in having one done with the doctors around here. Last one was painful. I asked my doctor and he just said I was too young to start menopause. I also am diabetic for about 15 years. I just started taking Lisinipril and Lipitor the last few weeks. . I can't ask my mother as she passed away 4 years ago. My sister who is 4 years younger has had them for many years. She has fibroids also. My other sister is 10 years younger so cannot ask her. I started when I was in 5th grade so about 10 or 11. Any comments?

I replied on your other post as it posted more than once. Mine did too! Lol! But I wanted to add that I just read somewhere that the average age of menopause is 51. Meaning that you have gone without a period for 12 months. Ten your considered to be in menopause. Before that its peri menopause. Meaning your getting there! So, at age 48 in a few weeks, your most like starting and it's gonna get fun! Lol! I'm 48 and will be 49 in October. I feel for you! It's a confusing exhausting time! Good luck! And like I said in my last post, which I wasn't allowed to post again for some reason, feel free to txt me. I could use all the help I can get too! Debbie.
