Menopause attains about 30 years after attaining periods. The breast tenderness shows a hormonal imbalance.This can be pre menopausal. some times normal menstruation also gets such a disturbance & it is treated by hormone.
Please consult a Gynecologist, to have a physical examination ,investigations ( as per need)- and also treatment .
The head ache,tiredness you have, you need to keep you blood sugar level normal, get your blood pressure checked.Refractory error check up & wearing prescribed spectacle after consultation of an opthalmologist is also advised .
The prematurity of your kids & their problems have nothing to do with your present menstrual problem.

but if you find your progesteron defficiensy.
