      Hi Mandee Itchy skin like this is very common in the menopause and often linked to falling oestrogen. Hopefully, my tips above will help you here but if you are worried at all do see your doctor.

    I also have itchy skin and scalp feel like something is crawling on me. Also having water retention on ankles and feet . My doctor said to lose weight but never thought to check my hormones not to happy with my doctor. I'm 46 started my period at age 9 so I think I'm starting young plus I had a partial hysterectomy.

      Hi Gloria The average age to start the approach to the menopause is 45-55 so you are in the right age range! Itchy skin is really common and hopefully the tips above will help to sort this for you. If you are still getting periods it is difficult to test the hormones accurately so most doctors wouldn't offer at this stage. With a partial hysterectomy you tend to get the menopause at roughly the same time you would have done had you not had the operation.
