I'm 41 years old and after reading over your website, I think I might be at the beginning stages of the menopause. Over the last 4-5 months, my periods have became very heavy, with blood clots appearing within the first two days. Due to the digestive troubles I have to take laxatives quite regularly. I feel very uncomfortable and I'm bloating after I've been on my regular runs, four times a week. I have a dull ache in my pubic area. What tests can confirm whether it is the menopause that is happening? Or, could it be something else?

Do you have questions? Please feel free to ask.
