Early Menopause
I am 38 years of age and had my tubes tide a few years back.
I seem to be extremely moody and get bad hot flushes especially at night when I sleep. My periods are also changing.

Am I going through early menopause and if so what can I take especially about my mood changes?

Any advice?

Thanks

Symptoms such as you describe can start a few years before you actually go through menopause. It may be best to check your hormone levels to see whether you are close to the menopause or not. If so, HRT would help.
