Just tried to search for perimenopausal and it pulled up stuff from "04 so I'll start a new thread with hopes that other women might have thoughts on it. I'm 34 and since dd's birth 3 years ago I have noticed major changes. Up until cycle returned at 18 months I was much more emotional than I had ever been and attributed it to stress. Maybe it was related? Then after af returned, I started having MAJOR low's, much more moody than I've ever been in a cyclical way. Cycles starting getting closer too; usually 23 days or so. I can tell when I ovulate now which is new. And have much more BB's fullness etc. Twice now I have had such horrible months with sore bbs, nauseau, tiredness, etc. that I really feared pg... I mean I couldn't imagine that 3 weeks of that was only pms!!!!! Ok, so I've heard caffeine, diet, exercise, mutiple vit, and calcium/magnesium are all helpful. What have others noticed about perimenopause and what is working for you?
