I’m sorry I can’t advise, I just wanted you to know you’re not alone and hopefully someone in a similar position may be able to offer some advice. I’ve just turned 40 so not quite at that stage but I’m sure it won’t be long until I’m in the same boat. Our fibro body’s really don’t cope well with any changes at all ☹️

I am going through the same thing with my menopause it seem to get worse. I had an emergency hysterectomy in 05 so menopause hit me hard and quick. I have no answer yet but hoping soon. Hugs
