talk to me girls!

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?
