    It has been 3 years since last period. I don't take any HRT or anything and wanted to know if fatigue (not real bad) on a daily basis and aches and pains off and on should still be happening 3 years later??? Some days I just feel blah and want to sleep. Have had chronic back pain for 10 plus years and some days just want to chill out. I never really got hit flashes but would get a little warm now and then. How long can women have menopausal symptoms??? Thank you

      Hi Lyn Symproms can go on longer for some women but often other health issues may be involved. Fatigue can also be caused by low iron, low thyroid function, low vitamin D or B12 so it is a good idea to ask your doctor to test for these just to rule them out. It is difficult to say how long symptoms will last as it is different for every one, sorry.

    Hi. I recently had ufe. About a week before my first cycle after the procedure I began having hot flashes, extreme nausea that i couldn't eat and barely drink, dizziness but worst of all was this panicked state of anxiety that lasted for 3 days. I felt terrified, hopeless and like there was not 1 thing too look forward to or enjoy doing. I had to make myself keep busy and surround myself with people to avoid panic attacks. If this is menopause or perimenopause i need help with the nausea and psychiatric presentations, the hot flashes didn't really bother me. The mental state scared the hell out of me

      Hi Leanne We do know that any physical or emotional stress/shock can affect the hormones quite dramatically and it can sometimes take a little while for everything to settle down again. However, it is really important to go back to your doctor first about this just in case it is related to the operation. Your doctor can may be able to check your hormone levels to see what might be going on and suggest something to help in the meantime.

    My name is Shanda. I’m 40 years old I’m suffering from night sweats, hot flashes, and nausea. My blood work showed I am in menopause. I went nine months with no cycle, however I started nine months to the day with a seven day period. Help

      Hi Shanda Periods coming back after 6 months or more is quite common and just often due to a 'last fling' by your hormones. However, we do also advise getting a check up from your doctor as well just to make sure there are no other triggers such as fibroids.

      Hi, thank you so much for your reply this helps me out ! Also struggling with severe panic attacks. I’ve had anxiety my whole life but never a panic disorder where my blood pressure shoots through the roof. Found myself in the hospital and was told I’m having panic attacks. Wondering if this is hormone related as well. So many changes going on and I’m not taking any supplements or anything for my menopause.

      Hi Shanda Menopausal panic attacks are usually caused by a reduction in oestrogen levels. If you don't get another period within the next month or so you could try Menopause Support to gently support your oestrogen. It is important to focus on eating regularly as low blood sugars can trigger an attack - have something, however small, every 3-4 hours, e.g. a banana or some dried fruit or nuts. Also, keep your water intake up as dehydration makes you feel way more panicky and gives you palpitations. Avoid caffeine if you can, as this can trigger panic attacks too, as can very sugary foods. To help yourself further, start practicing simple breathing exercises several times daily - you may be surprised at how good this is at averting panicky feelings. Get some gentle outdoor exercise every day if you can - just 10-20 minutes gentle walking makes you feel better. Check your diet for wholegrains, dried fruit, nuts, seeds and green veg, as these are sources of magnesium which supports your nervous system. You could take an extra magnesium supplement too (e.g. Salus Haus Floradix liquid magnesium), and there is some magnesium in the Menopause Support. Herbs such as Avena sativa can be extremely calming too.

      Thank you so much. I cannot tell you how helpful this information is. I appreciate you and appreciate your time and research! This makes me feel so much better. I’ve realize that panic disorder in a panic attack is completely different than every day anxiety. I have suffered from anxiety my entire life but these panic disorder episodes when my blood pressure rises to 180/100 with the crazy rush through my body is a whole Nother issue. My resting blood pressure is usually 99/69. I jog 3 miles every day. This is definitely helping me. Menopause and panic disorder going hand-in-hand it makes much sense. Again I appreciate your time and your help!

    I am 49 and just went into menopause a few months back. I did not think it would be this bad. Nausea and anxiety has me tied up in knots even though I have min stress in my life. I am slim, get plenty of exercise, eat healthy until all this nausea started. Now I am having anxiety and can barely drink or eat anything. I am anxious to finally go to the doctor in hopes they can give me something to cut the nausea so I can atleast eat and drink. I most of all pray this doesn’t last the rest of my life.
