I'm sorry if this is not the right forum for this post, but I really hope someone will know something about what is happening to me:
I got my first period three months before my 12th birthday. Until a year ago, I had my periods every months. They were heavy, but regular. I turned 47 a month ago. I was diagnosed with mononucleosis in 1995, at age 26. Five years later, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease. Since then, I have tried every thyroid medication known to man. I am currently on Erfa Thyroid. I have also been diagnosed with adrenal fatigue.
About a year ago, my periods started changing. I had just turned 46 when that happened. I have read that, very often, periods start coming more often, before becoming more rare. For me, they went from completely regular to very irregular in no time at all. My periods just started coming every other month, instead of every month.
I saw a Hertoghe doctor (one of the best, according to a French forum) two weeks ago. This doctor told me it's a bit early to be going through menopause, but did not really suggest any treatment.
About eight months ago, I saw my OB-Gyn who prescribed the drug Primolut-Nor to start my periods again. That was successful but, ever since, they have been highly irregular. My OB-Gyn (sorry if this is not the correct term in British English) also examined me thoroughly, but found nothing wrong with me.
My last period started right before Christmas, on December 20. Since then...nothing.
I would love to hear from anyone who has gone through this. How did peri-menopause start for you? Has anyone gone from having regular monthly bleedings to having bleedings every other month, only to have them stop all of a sudden?
