Too young: Premature menopause is defined as signs of menopause before age 40. However, just because you are not having your period does not necessarily mean you are in menopause. There are many other causes for loss of period at your age, including pituitary tumors. You should see your doctor for evaluation. ...Read more

Bioidentical hormone: In menopause the ovaries are no longer producing both estrogen (estradiol) and progesterone, which are potent female hormones. Every cell in a woman's body has estrogen and Progesterone receptors, not just the reproductive system, so the entire body suffers once in menopause.

I have been diagnosed with menopause at 21 and now i'm 28 years old and had white leakedge on my paints is this ovulating?

MD-evaluate discharge: You'll need 30 more yrs of HRT than average. This should be managed with care and great precision. I would recommend saliva testing and bioidentical hormones transdermally. The balance and ratios of estradiol, estriol, progesterone and testosterone should all be maintained at a normal level for a healthy 25 year old. The vaginal discharge and uterine lining should be evaluated by your GYN. ...Read more

Should i be concerned if my feces are green? I am 44 years old and menopausal

Should i be concerned if my feces are green? I am 44 years old and menopausal

Hello. : Hello. Although i can’t say why your feces is green; let’s examine possible causes. Since you did not describe any health problems, I am working on the assumption that you feel healthy. One reason could be your diet. Eating foods that contain chlorophyll (i.e., broccoli, spinach or other green leafy vegetables) or taking iron supplements or multiple vitamins that contain iron can lead to green bowel movements. Green food coloring which can be found in foods like popsicles or jello is a possibility. If you have diarrhea and green stools that is a different matter. Bile is green and is excreted into the small intestine. If your stool is moving too fast through your gut, it may not be properly digested and you could end up with green stool from the bile (rather the brown feces). Possible causes of green bowel movements can include: using antibiotics, food poisoning, diarrhea from bacteria or parasites, irritable bowel syndrome, using laxatives, malabsorption and diseases that cause inflammation in varying areas of the gut. It is not uncommon to have green bowel movements once in a while. If you have green bowel movements and you have diarrhea or abdominal pain, that would be a reason to get checked out by the doctor. If your stool is always green and it can’t be explained by supplements, medications or diet, check with your doctor. Take care. ...Read more
