38. I've been peri-menopausal for several years now
I consider it the worst of both worlds. I still have regular periods and cramps, but I get the mood swings, hot flashes and night sweats (so bad that I wake up dripping wet). I have zero energy and have gained at least 10 pounds in the past year or so. I'm 46 and probably have several more years of this fun. My GYN put be on birth control pills a few years ago, they seemed to help, but once the HRT studies came out, I stopped them. I've tried soy, black cohosh etc., but nothing seems to help. At least this is the cool season in Florida.
