    Hi I started a period 2 weeks today I stopped for a couple of days at the beginning but have been bleeding heavily with blot clots for the majority of the 2 weeks. Iam 41 this year and my mother started menopause at 33. Could I be starting to go through it or could it be something else? I have bad cramps as well

    Hi im wondering if I've started the menopause im 49 yrs old 50 in august. I haven't had a period for 3 months and a few periods b4 that all be heavier only lasted 2 or 3 days. I Haven't really had hot flushes or night sweats. I already take calcium tablets due to taking steroids for 2 yrs but have had more joint pain lately. Any thoughts would be welcome please. Thanks

      Hi Mandy Missing periods often indicate the start of the approach to the menopause and joint pain is one of the common symptoms that women can experience. I have posted a video blog on this and what you can do to help yourself so please do take a look. Joints http://www.avogel.co.uk/health/menopause/eileens-blog/2015/12/a-vogels-menopause-mondays-joint-aches-pains/ 25% of women don't get sweats or flushes so you may be one of the lucky ones there!
