ok, this is not about me, but my mom (and no she did not ask me to ask here) I am trying to maybe get some insight.

She is 40, going to be 41 in October. her period came normally last time, but afterwards her boobs hurt like they do before a period. Now she had her period 2 weeks early. this is unusual for her because its been normal forever. i don't know if its lite or heavy.

She is going in Monday for blood work to find out on Friday. well i can't wait that long, for some type of an idea.

She says she CANT be pregnant, like i didn't ask why but she said she couldn't...but even the nurse (where she made the appointment at) asked her if she could be pregnant

My family thinks it might be menapaus (sp?) but she thinks she is too young.

i want some possibilities like could it be something else? could she really be pregnant(which is one of the reasons i'm asking..i think it would be freakin sweet if she was), i honestly don't know. should i be worried? cause right now i'm anxious cause i want another sibling, but i don't know, i'm kinda scared

I know this is a teen site, but i'm hoping maybe someone can help with some possibilites, or a website that i could find some help on, like ask a doctor and they actually reply? I've looked it up, but haven't really found answers.

It is defineatly NOT too soon for your mother to be beginning the early stages of menopause.

If she's having a period, it is very unlikely that she's pregnant. A pregnancy cannot survive the normal length and flow of a regular period.

I wouldn't worry about this right now. Your mother is doing the right thing by getting it all checked out. So hang in there! Hopefully you'll have some answers soon.

Nursing is a work of heart!
