User :   I'm 22 years old I was on birth control for a year. Stopped it last month i'm having what seems to be hot flashes i'm sweating all the time. Never had this happen to me before also, i've been having headaches alot now, been feeling a little nauseous mainly at night tho. Could this mean that i'm going threw menopause? Or maybe pregnant?
Doctor :   menopause does not happen at the age of 22
