How do we know when we are in peri or in meno?

I was told by one doctor (when I had to have a bunch of tests for other stuff) that my estrogen was low. Then I went to the OBGY doc and she said the hormone test the other doc took was not accurate because I need to have the bloodwork done on the third day of my cycle. That was four months ago, and I haven't had a period...they have been irregular for the last two or three years, but only about 2-3 weeks late.

I am getting such bad hot flashes I can hardly stand it. It has been very hot in my area and I am extremely tired. I am on thyroid meds and it is normal by recent tests.

Please...I'd love to hear what you are doing. Is the only difference between peri and meno that the cycle ceases?

They claim you go through premeno for 10 years before you are actually in menopause.Im 48 I had a hysterectomy I felt bad for years Im just now starting to feel descent.Get a good book and read it.My gyn gave me one it explained alot. some women committed suicide thought they had some dreaded disease. It was menopause.
