Symptoms of menopause?

Ok I have been reading different sites and I am confused about the symptoms or menopause. Can some list them for me I know the hot flashes, night sweat and mood swings. But there are others like aging. Will I start to age faster? I have heard on hear that you can but other web sites don't say anything about it. So if you could list some of the ones I don't know. I'm really worried. Please and thank you

Re: Symptoms of menopause?

Relax... are you taking HRT? If so, when your hormones are balanced again, things should return to mostly normal.

Here's what I noticed before HRT and with no estrogen on board: more insomnia, hot flashes, dry skin, wrinkles, eyesight worsened, more UTIs, more yeast infections, weight gain, tinnitus, more allergies.

That being said, now that I have HRT on board, I'm feeling actually better than I was pre-menopausal. I don't think you'll age faster, but you will have symptoms of unbalanced hormones if you leave everything alone and don't use HRT. The "O" is fine for me with balanced hormones.

Re: Symptoms of menopause?

I am taking hrt. Thank you for your support. I have been on them 3 days after surgery I am now 6 days post op haven't had any symptoms yet except not sleeping well. My doctor told me it could take a while for my body to deplet all the hormones I had stored and that it will hit me. I am very scared I really don't know what to expect. Hopefully I'm one of those that never have any symptoms. I feel like I'm just waiting around to go crazy and have horrible hot flashes. How long did it take you to hit menopause with all the symptoms after surgery? I'm on the viville dot .1. Right now no side effects from that right now. Does the hormones take all the symptoms away or do you still get hot flashes and etc. while your on hormones it just makes it manageable?im just clueless and my doctor is not really telling me anything and I don't go back for another 3 weeks. Thank you for listening.

Re: Symptoms of menopause?

Hi Jen,
Here is one story. My surg was three weeks ago. I went cold turkey -meaning no HRT right after surgery, thinking I could manage without. Started having hot flashes and night sweats on day 3. Insomnia the whole week after, got a migrained on day 7 and starting vomiting. What pushed me over the edge was constant crying jags - which I had never ever experienced and scared the ++++ out of me. I am guessing I was deteriorating while my stored estrogen was being depleted. Two days after starting the patch, I felt emotionally stable and have had no night sweats since. I am older - 54 - so had many of the symptoms that Calypso describes and figured I had to "suck it up" given my age. I am hoping some of those get better too - its too early to tell I think.
I am hoping and praying this good feeling holds and i can tolerate the patch for a long time. The symptoms without were horrendous.
Hugs to you.
