Default menopause question

I'm in the beginning stages of menopause. TOM still visits, but the visits are getting farther and farther apart. My question from those of you who have finished this journey

Did you get the "just about to start" feelings very often. I seem to go through them about every 3 weeks. I get the feelings, but then it passes. Sometimes I feel like I spend more time "on the verge" then I do not having a period. Since I do still have periods every 3-4 months I'm always worried about being caught off guard, in public, probably while wearing white pants.

Hello, I am sorry I can't help much with this since I had to have a total hysterectomy at 42 and was thrown straight into menopause with all the hot flushes etc thrown at me.

Prior to having my hysterectomy I had had several years of very irregular periods and also would have some of the feelings that you have, I must admit that at that time I often found myself wearing something (even if only a mini pad) "just in case". A lot of my irregularity we later found out was caused because of multiple ovarian cysts and also a MASSIVE fibroid.....these are why I ended up with a total hysterectomy.

I refuse to take any artificial hormones so deal with all the menopausal symptoms as they arise.

Take care,
Jennylee

Yup, I never go anywhere with out pantiliners. I used to be regular as clockwork (brutal but regular) then they just started creeping together and getting more irregular.
