I've not been told by a doctor that I'm experiencing peri-menopause, but I'm fairly certain this is my issue. My periods have gone from clock-work predictable (on no birth control needed for us b/c DH was snipped 3 yrs ago), to irregular with spotting here and there. My sex drive is through the roof for about 3 weeks out of the month. I'm also getting periodic pimples, which I rarely if ever used to get -- even during my teen years. I'm 38 yrs old and my mother had a hysterectomy, so she has no clue when she really started to "change". I'm kinda sad about all this -- I feel too young to have this happening already :(
So please, share with me your experience so I can determine if I'm "normal".

It was (AND IS) FREAKING HELL. The only plus is no periods (I think I am one month shy a year now, woo hoo!). That doesn't mean I didn't have all the PMS shit because I did, just no flow to release it! Hot flashes bite the big one. The sex thing? Poo.......I could care less (and most days prefer not to) about sex. I am a mess. Good God, did I just vent? LOL I was about 37 I think when I started.
