    Hi I am 37 and have been getting terrible night sweats, headaches, irritability and memory loss. At present I am in the mini pill so don't have any periods. Could this be the start of menopause or am I too young and is something else.

      Hi Vicky These are common menopause symptoms but you are still a little on the young side to be starting the menopause (although it can happen if other female relatives started around the same time). However, changes in periods, flushes etc can be caused by other issues such as stress/anxiety, low io0rn, low thyroid function or low vitamin D so it is a good idea to ask your doctor to test for these just to rule them out. If the tests are clear then do get back in touch and I will see if I can help you.

    Hi I am turning 50 next month, I have been to docs last week with pain in tummy where my coil is, I asked to get it checked as was painful even 1 1/2 weeks after period which is unusual. I went on the Monday 10 days after period finished and doc informed me I was bleeding. Since the check I have been bleeding fresh blood daily that has been a week now. I have lower back pain and am tossing and turning at night to get to sleep, could this be the menopause. I have also been told I have tennis elbow as very painful left elbow again could this be a menopause symptom

      Hi Ann-Marie, Whilst many women find that their cycle becomes irregular and they bleed more or less than previously, I'd prefer it if your symptoms were thoroughly checked out as ongoing pain is never a good thing. Again, whilst an increase in general muscular aches and pains is quite normal during the menopause, something like tennis elbow is not necessarily a menopause symptom - you could have a normal strain to the area. An osteopath might be able to work with you on your elbow to see if it responds to the usual treatment. Best Wishes, Eileen

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.
