God Tess, that sounds absolutely horrendous. I am not looking forward to it! I heard an ad on the radio yesterday for some kind of herbal treatment from the pharmacy, but I can't remember the name. I haven't had regular cycles for about 4 years because of all the running I do. I've maybe had 5 or 6 in total, which come shortly after a big race when I'm resting. Maybe I won't even notice when I get menopausal!!!!

I didn't realise running did that Sarah :shock:
It took me about 4 years to feel like a whole person again- it is debilitating at times but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Yup. It's a problem for Elite athletes who haven't had a family yet. Paula Radcliffe stopped running about a year before she wanted to conceive. It's also linked to body fat and if you have less than about 18% then that can cause them to stop too.

Four years, my goodness. Poor you, Trudi :hug:

Quick update, one week of the two sups at highest dose, big changes in me :shock: can't be certain it's the ashwa and maca but after such a long time with awful symptoms, this is the only change i've made apart from cutting out coffee. Haven't had a hot/cold flash for three days. Haven't had a mood swing either :thumbup: feeling much more 'tough', finding it much easier to confront several major things that I have felt powerless to deal with. Have alot more energy, less nervous energy. don't feellike every little thing is the end of the world; Feelings of wanting to take care of myself, and capable of doing so; So anyone out there going through extreme menopause ( i expect you're thinking "trust her to have 'extreme' symptoms" :lol: i'd say it's worth trying! as I said, I have no proof that the sups are doing it and that it's not just a natural progression, but it seems possible, quietly hopeful :thumbup:
