I am 58, was thrown into menopause at 51 when I started chemo for breast cancer (was not showing any signs of it approaching at that point yet). Except for some mood symptoms which can be caused by many other things, besides my periods stopping I have never experienced any menopause symptoms. Anyone else?

I didn't have the horrible sweaty gonna rip off my clothes hot flashes that others seemed to experience. I did notice for once in my life I wasn't always cold, but it was very subtle.

I had very few. I know how lucky I was. A friend of mine suffered terribly.

Never really had hot flashes except at night...I had those night sweats where you wake up drenched and steaming. It was actually almost nice, compared to being too cold all the time.

For me, menopause was more of a blessing than (the) curse.

My periods started to get a little closer together in my 30s (25 days apart). Then in my mid 40s I stopped skipping months. Then I would skips several months. Travel would spur on a period (always started on a plane). I probably hadn't had my period in 6 - 7 months when my daughter started hers for the first time (I complained to my husband that she ruined a perfectly good menopause). Anyway, that was probably my last. I was done at 48 with no hot flashes. I get a little warmer than I used to, but nothing big. Trouble sleeping has been my biggest symptom, and that continues.

No Symptoms

Nope, my periods just stopped when I reached 50. No tapering off, no irregular periods - nada.

Upon mentioning it to my sister, a nurse, though, she recommended I go in to an OB/GYN for an exam. Secession of periods have been known to indicate some forms of cancer. Thank goodness it wasn't that and my gyn sent me on my way.

I've not noticed any typical signs of menopause, although I seem to get hot more easily - I prefer cooler environs, but then I always have. My students used to complain about my classroom being too cold, and I'd tell them to put on a sweatshirt!

I actually started having hot flashes in my late 30s. The doctor I saw didn't think it was anything like that. At 39 I saw another doctor who confirmed I was already post menopausal.

Not too noticeable for me. I had a hysterectomy at 42 but kept ovaries (fear of aging...ha, ha). I had a few hot flashes at night in my mid fifties but then it was over.

I didn't. When I was in my early 40s, I asked my mom if she had them. She said she didn't, and I thought she was just saying that so I wouldn't worry. When the time came, and it wasn't a big deal, then I had to believe her.

No symptoms for me.
Found last week my friend was like that too.
Some people really suffer thru menopause so I never mention my symptom free experience.

Mine were terrible and ongoing for the past 16 years although they have eased some. Not only could I steam up my own sunglasses...I could steam up yours too if you were standing close enough. It could be worse though...My mom used to steam up the inside of the car

My mom told me she had had no problems and no real symptoms. Well I read the books and got prepared. And then I waited, and waited, and waited, and waited. Finally I realized that, yep, I wasn't going to have any symptoms either. Um...does it count when I visit my 92 year old dad and I sweat like a dog in his WARM apartment?!?!?!?
