Menopause at the age of 42?
I am 42 years old and just recently started having abnormal periods. They seem to be coming about every 25 days now and they seem quite heavy at times and also I've experienced cramping lately.  This may not be abnormal to some but I have always had very lite periods and every 28 days with no cramping ever.I was just wondering what could be going on. What are the signs of menopause? and at what age does it usually start? Do you have to take hormones?

I am 30 yrs old. 3 yrs ago when i began having hot flashes the dr sent me to see my obgyn. who then told me i am starting menopause. so i would have to agree there is no specific age that it begins at. I take evening primrose and black cohosh for my symptoms and soon the doc is putting me on ert. good luck.
