Hi Dr - can you tell me if it is possible to be peri menopausal at 42. What are some of the symptoms and can the Dr do a blood test to confirm??

Hallo Anon
Yes you can be peri-menopausal at 42.
See http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/perimenopause/DS00554/DSECTION=symptoms
Some women may show slight lowering of the female hormones but there is no specific test as it is a gradual process. Have your thyoid test checked too.
