Is it early menopause or something else?
Deann223 posted:
I am only 39 years old, but I have not had a period in a year and 3 months. I do have cramps, like period cramps, sometimes and my breasts get tender, like they do during your period at the same time I am having cramps.
Am I going into early menopause of is this a sign of something else?

Hi Deann and welcome here,

While menopause is a possibility, the only way to know for sure what is going on is to see your doctor/gynecologist for tests and an exam.

Let us know what they find out.
