Hey...thanks for this website! I am new here..here goes.

I had my uterus removed in '99. I am wondering if I am going through early menopause. I am 39, 6 months away from 40. I am a witch more so than usual, and caught myself taking a pain pill to counter a borderline anxiety attack. not real responsible... The other symptoms I have read about can be explained by Lupus, and/or steroids. (cravings, weight gain, constipation, hair loss....)

I called the gyn and asked about changing anti depressants. He upped my Effexor XR...it did help, but was not a cure all.

If it keeps on another week or so I will call for a blood test, but hate to waste a doctors' visit.

Input, Ladies???
