I'm hoping that some of you are able to give me advice on this. I have a family history of early menopause with my grandmother going through it at 32 and my mother at 29. According to my doctor, I'm now in pre-menopause (he may have called it something else but the basic gist was this) and at 25, I'm feeling a little like I don't quite know what to do.
At the moment I'm reading two books by Christiane Northrup "Women's bodies, women's wisdom" and her "Menopause" book.
Anyway, I was just wondering if any of you have had this experience and what you found helped. My already bad periods are seeming to get worse pain-wise, but lighter, so that's interesting. Other than that really don't like the lack of temperature control that seems to come with it or the dryness.

When I went Vegan for a year, there was no question about the fact that the grains, starches and soy products pushed me into perimenopause.
As an O-nonnie, I would definitely cut out grains entirely and limit starches. Sugars did not seem to have the same effect. Also, there are a bunch of us, O's in particular, who are EXTREMELY sensative to soy and not in a good way. You might also eliminate soy from your life for a while and see how you feel. What are your symptoms that make you and your Dr. think that you are already there at 25? Sounds fishy to me. Remember, health issue diagnosis and treatment were sketchy at best in your grandmother's age, and somewhat questionable even at Mom's time. I'd definitely seek out other medical opinions and see if there might be other causes for your symptoms. 25 sounds extremely fishy to me.
Get to a good Naturalpath. She has me take Symplex F which has balanced me beautifully. Meletonin and Gaba throw me right off due to the way they affect the Growth Hormones. I am very sensitive to these.
