I am 49 years old and I had the Mirena Coil fitted after the birth of my last child, when I was 36. As I do not have any periods, I cannot use that to gauge if I am going through the menopause. However, I have other symptoms - tiredness, tearfulness, loss of interest in food, low energy, short temper ect. How can I find out if this is definitely a result of the menopause rather than anything else e.g. underactive thyroid?

Did you know?

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
