Menopause: Menopause is defined as the normal ending of the menstrual cycle after one year without a period. The ovaries stop producing eggs and hormones. So women can no longer conceive after menopause and decreasing hormone levels can cause symptoms of aging, hot flashes, mood and brain changes, skin changes less libido and vaginal dryness.

Confusion and the: other symptoms you mention MAY be menopausal but they can also be there for other reasons. Please see your doc so that you get a proper diagnosis and treatment if needed. I see that you are 32 y.o. and that is young for menopause. Peace and good health.
