Cycles and timing of symptoms

Posted by cheerful1 (My Page) on

I've experienced various pre- and peri-menopausal symptoms (irritability, exhaustion, headaches) for a long time. I was curious if anyone has documented their cycles to see at which point they've experienced a particular symptom. For example, I always get a splitting headache the day before my period, but haven't kept track of when the exhaustion takes place, or the irritability. At this stage of my life, I probably should.

RE: Cycles and timing of symptoms

well, I am still having my periods... my sweating starts the minute I start my period... I take wild yam cream until I ovulate, then cut back... then my PMS takes over from the minute I ovulate...
for me, pre/perimenopause has made my period regular of all things... barely there, but I can time it on the scheduling isn't a problem anymore! :o) I know that sweating will start the minute I get out of the shower :o) (of course, so why take a shower?) or eat something warm..... or, go to sleep! it's all like clockwork...
