    My premature menopause blog
    Jaena posted:

    I'm a 35-year old who is entering premature menopause, and in my struggles to deal with this heartbreaking situation --I'd just broken up with my fiance who didn't want children, and started my life over with the hopes of meeting someone and starting a family-- I started a personal blog that you might find entertaining. Please let me know if you like it by posting a comment!

    I have been wishing for menopause since I first started my period at 12! I will be 37 next week, but I have had the hot flashes for about 3 years now. Now, I'm actually flushing. My face gets bright red for about 4-5 minutes. I've had M.S. for over 15 years now, so this stuff isn't a disappointment to me at all! From what I understand, you can still get pregnant during the years of perimenopause. They may last 10 years! You have plenty of time! Don't stress out about it. Everything happens for a reason!!
