Hi Im Kelly, im 28 years old and female. I have had symptoms for the last 8 month approx. It first started with my period, it became more frequant, sometimes I would have a period every week ranging from being heavy and bright red flow, now it is more dark/black in colour, I be off my period for 3-4 days then come back on again and the last one lasted for 9 days! I went of then for 3 days and now back on again! This has become very frequant now and a concern. Other symptoms include:- Hot flushes and night sweats, difficult in sleeping, aching joints/bones, tiredness and tearful (deppression). Tender breasts, headaches, hair loss, loss of sex drive and weight gain in stomach area feeling bloated etc. I had a baby 16 months ago and my periods were ok for about 6 months before all these symptoms occured. I am not on any contraceptive pills or injections (depo) and not sexually active at present, due to this problem. I was looking up on the internet for advice to see if it is the signs of early-menopause or something else?, Please could you advise? Many Thanks Kelly.
