Your symptoms: could be a manifestation of early menopause, but they could also be caused by other diseases including uncontrolled diabetes, infection in the pelvic region or urinary tract, or overweight. These potential causes need to be sorted out by an experienced healthcare professional. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.

Menopause?: These symptoms are what health professionals call "nonspecific". That means they don't point strongly to any particular cause and many conditions can be responsible, making it difficult to judge the cause. At age 46, of course menopause is the usual explanation for no periods, and could cause some of your other symptoms. But it could be more. See your doctor and take it from there. Good luck!

Multiple symptoms : You need an examination and probably labs to see what may be going on
