    What is the average age to start getting them?

    Could it b a warning sign for a medical problem?

    WAY older than that. Around 50. Who knows about the health problems. I have always been healthy except for a rare cold.

    I am also getting a lot of headaches. Not super bad migraines but annoying headaches often.

    My niece started going through menopause in her early thirties, which means hot flashes, night sweats etc.

    It all depends on your body wants to go through the change.

    It also depends on when you first started your period when you were a kid.

    So you are not alone on this but it never hurts to get checked by your gyno.


    I get blood work once a year to see when I am starting the change and they say I am not even close yet. The reason being is because I am on birth control pill to control bleeding because of a fibroid tumor. When you start going through the change there is a change the fibroid shrinks enough that it isn't bothersome anymore.

    Sure getting checked by the gyno was my first thought too...no wait second thought. My first thought was that health insurance would be nice. I can't afford it. I have a choice. Work for health insurance or work for a paycheck to try to pay my bills. Well slap me with a silly stick, I chose to work for a paycheck and pray I don't get sick.

    I felt stupid after I wrote that because I know you said you didn't have health insurance. Do they have health fairs for women at health departments in NY. I don't know the protocol for NY. I know Maryland has free screenings for women.

    Don't feel stupid! It's not your fault I have no insurance. I have no idea if they have free screenings. I guess I should find out.
