Hey Red, I am in the same boat as you are, I don't have periods anymore due to a hysto at 31 and the only way I know when I'm near my "Ladies Days"...lol.. is when my breasts start killing me and I get really grouchy.. But, for the last couple of years, the timing has been very irregular so I am now taking hormone replacement therapy since my dr says I'm in the PRE menopause stage... I am taking Estradiol every day now and do notice that I feel less grumpy and my boobs quit hurting so much... I don't know how old you are, but if you are in your 40's, it Might be something you want to check into? I'm 45 this summer and she says I'm right in the age where things start to change... Also if you're not having periods due to a hysto, you don't need progesterone since you don't have to worry about uterine cancer... so I only take estrogen. Also, I have very fibrocystic breasts.... such a pain, I have had 4 cysts drained and one lumpectomy in the last 4 years.. all b9, but still, what a pain!!
