    have been diagnosed as peri menopausal, was having really bad mood swings, hot flushes , night sweats, palpitations, anxiety.i wasnt too keen on going on HRT so i am on sertraline, and clonodine , which is keeping me quite stable, im also taking magnesium and the menopause support tablets. my problem is down below, itching ,and i feel like my insides have been scraped with a razor blade. i was given meds for thrush ,and antibiotics as a precaution to a gastric infection...i have a gel that i apply but its still not clearing the itch and soreness.im also using an estrogen and progesterone cream, but nothing is helping .does anyone else get this raw inside feeling and constant itching and soreness??

      Hi Jackie Are you applying the creams to the affected area? If so it is important to check that they are not making symptoms worse as some women are very sensitive in that area to any chemicals. Itching is often caused by falling oestrogen levels drying the vagina walls and also affecting the level of friendly bacteria that help to keep the vagina healthy. Unfortunately, the more times you have antibiotics the more the friendly bacteria are destroyed and this then becomes vicious cycle. I would suggest the Menopause Support which is known to help gently raise and balance oestrogen https://www.avogel.co.uk/herbal-remedies/soy-isoflavones/index.php and also a vaginal probiotic to help restore the vaginal bacteria, for more info see https://www.optibacprobiotics.co.uk/shop/for-women Remember to drink lots of water as dehydration can make this worse and wear only cotton pants to allow good air flow.

    I have been having hot flushes on and off. I don't sleep much at all and when I do I'm having the most vivid dreams. My last period was light considering I've had a copper coil fitted around 4 months ago this period is earlier and the heaveist I've ever had and clotting. My moods are very up and down and my skin on my face is bad and also have had coloured gel like discharge for around 3 months no I no something is not right.

      Hi Lili Missing periods, although they can indicate the start of the menopause, can be caused by a number of factors such as stress, fatigue, over work, excessive exercise, change of diet so it is a good idea to get this checked out by your doctor as well.

    I am only 39, but am wondering if I am hitting the perimenopause. I have been suffering with significant joint and muscle pains for a year now, had night sweats last year, then significant sleep disruption for months due to the pains, sweats and restless legs. I have been for physio/ osteopath/ acupuncture/ chiropractor treatments, have seen the rheumatologist, had CT scans and just had steroid injections. My mood is accordingly low. I feel like I am dragging myself from pillar to post and not finding any relief. I feel like I have literally 'aged' over night and am struggling. I have always been a fit and healthy, very active person and now I am the exact opposite. I am looking for answers. Am I clutching at straws?

      Hi Sandra Generally, 39 is still a little young to be starting the menopause, although it can happen, especially if other close female relatives started around the same time. Smoking, obesity, ethnic origin and some chronic health issues can cause an early menopause too. However, your symptoms could be due to other factors such as stress, low iron levels or low thyroid function or low vitamin D, have all these been tested by your doctor? If not it is a good idea to ask just to rule them out. They may also be able to test your sex hormone levels and that can indicate what is happening. Has anyone mentioned seeing an Endocrinologist? They specialise in the whole hormone system (not just the sex ones) and issues with the Endocrine System can sometimes mimic menopause ones.

    Hi, I have been bleeding for 2 months now and feel very rough, extreme fatigue, headaches, joint/muscle ache to name a few. I am 44 and 3 years post chemo for breast cancer. Could I be peri menopausal and what might help. Can't cope like this. Thank you

      Hi Tamsyn It is really important that you see your doctor, although prolonged periods are quite common on the approach to the menopause they are not good for you and will quickly cause anaemia. This in turn can trigger fatigue, low mood/anxiety, poor sleep, joint pain so your symptoms may be more to do with this. Your doctor can find out why this is happening and offer an iron supplement. They may also be able to prescribe a non-hormonal medication to stop the bleeding.
