    I hope this is the right place to post this(sorry if it isn't). I am 37 am I to young to be going thru PMS. I feel like I am at times but there are so many symptoms I can't be sure. I have been real moody,tired, and cranky at times. My cycle has changed dramaticaly. I just don't know if I am going thru it or not. I have checked out web sites for information and they all show different symptoms. How can I be sure of what is going on with me :shrug: . I really don't have the money to go to the doctor right now.

    Do you mean menopause? I think all the ladies here feel PMS in one way or another at some point. :) I hope you feel better though.

    Look up something called "peri-menopause" -- it sounds like what you're going through, and affects women in their thirties.

    sounds like me over the last few years. peri-menopause, or pre menopause, can be just as irritating as the real deal. more so if the hormone swings get too bad. i use herbal teas, cool showers, and prenatal vitamins to keep myself in balance. if it gets too bad, i go see the doctor. i have no insurance either, but sometimes ya just gotta do it.

    I'm 38 and I have it BAD. I never had trouble with PMS stuff, and I think it's all coming at me at once! I'm terribly moody and can't seem to regulate my temperature anymore. Just this morning I was putting laundry away and it felt like the air in my bedroom was 100 degrees. I had to open a window to get some relief! Then I went to the basement to work and nearly froze. It's SO annoying not to know what to wear inside my own house!

    There are several herbs you can take to combat those sympthoms. Google them.
