    im worried about the menopause lol not one for the men

    im 31 and after having my baby my monthlys have only just returned (9 months later)
    i never normally suffer from pmt but the last few weeks i have been really stressed out and have been having awful hot flushes which are driving me mad.

    should i be worried its the menopause or could it just come to do with the return of the monthlys?has anyone else had this?

    this is probably the case, why don't you pop to your doctors to put your mind at rest?

    im not an expert but im sure its nothing to worry about

    ed nothing weird about ur periods coming back so late esp as u r breastfeeding....

    sometimes i get hot flushes (im 27) and i think it can just be down to hormones and stress of two lil kiddies...dont fret hun...

    Ed is fine but you are definately going through menopause

    try some black cohash - natural and extremely effective

    Yes, if you're in the least worried - see the doctor, but what you have described is very normal and believe me, it's not the menopause - you'll know for sure when that creeps up on you!!!

    Additional physical changesOnce you give birth, there is a large change … Additional physical changesOnce you give birth, there is a large change in the amount of certain hormones in your body. These changes can effect the amount of fluid in your body and can cause some common physical changes including:Retention of fluid/swellingInitial hair loss (your hair will come in again later)Hot flashesNight sweatsDry skinMood swingsIncreased urinationdryness .......(!)

    Hope you are back to normal soon edjaned :thumbsup:

    I went through the same thing for about 12-15 months after having my 3rd baby. Along with other things like brittle nails, my hair was really fine and limp....I think we all underestimate the amount our bodies go through during pregnacy, birth and how long it all takes to settle back down afterwards - especially when you're breastfeeding aswell. I'm sure you'll be fine - just remember to look after you too :).

    sounds like hormones as the menopause is also caused by your hormones thats whats making you think this is it. should see Dr

    maybe you need sexy time :-D

    I still get hot flushes and my youngest is 9. Went to the Doctors about it, had a blood test but its just one of those things. I know it doesn't make you feel any better but at least you know you're not alone.:friends:

    In the majority of surgeries you don't need to make appt to see GP. Practice nurse can go through all the checks . I would suggest basic blood tests to make sure you are not anaemic and also a check on your thyroid levels. If they are normal levels, you can rest assured your body will get back to normal. Hormone blood tests are not that reliable.
