    I just turned 41 and this past week was told that I'm menopausal. I stopped having periods in October. I've had my hormone levels drawn and they are in the "menopause" range. NOT perimenopause, but true menopause. Isn't 41 quite young?
    Does FMS have anything to do with early menopause?
    I'd love to hear what anyone else has to say about this topic.

    My mother was 40 and in menopause. Im going to be 50 and didnt hit it yet. So it can vary. I was peri menopause over a year ago and saw a hormone doctor. He put me on bio identical progesterone cream and testosterone cream and now I have the hormones of a 20 year old. I never felt better. Might be worth looking into. My periods are regular and no more hot flashes. I also have a sex drive back. Only problem is I have no man to share it with. LOL
