Did anybody go into early menopause because of their Behçet’s? I’m waiting for my rheumatologist appointment to confirm my Behçet’s diagnosis but wanted to see if anyone has experienced some effect on hormones.
I’m 46 and had an IUD for 5 years so I didn’t menstruate because of the IUD which released progesterone. My IUD got stuck and my doctor couldn’t get it out so I had to have surgery to remove it. So before considering getting a new IUD put in I asked my doctor to check my hormones in case I don’t need a new IUD. And I found out I’m post menopausal and I never had any symptoms like hot flashes.
Did anyone go through an early menopause or wacky hormone levels? I’m wondering if my hormones are going to fluctuate and I don’t want to get pregnant if I’m not truly post menopausal.
Thanks in advance.
