Well, I am not quite sure if I am in menopause or not, so I'll call it mini-pause until I can get more clarification. I know I'm somewhat young to be going into menopause, but shoot, my mother went into it in her 40's, maybe late 40's and I'm in my early 40's. Well, I hadn't had a cycle in 9 months. Oh no, ain't no pregnancy happening around here. Stop thinking that anyway. I'm not saying it can't happen, I'm saying it ain't gonna happen. I went to the doctor to find out what was going on. My OB-GYN said it was common for women in their 40's to go through it. I am not complaining over here at all. She said it was hard to tell if I was going through menopause or not and that it was going to be a waiting game. A what? I don't think I have ever heard that. So you mean to tell me that I will just have to sit around here on a monthly basis to see if something plops out of nowhere. Hmmmmm!!

Well, the doctor said that if it is not here for a year, then we will see what is going on. Ok, I'm really not complaining on my end.  I don't have to see a cycle ever again in my life. The doctor asked me if I have hot flashes. I responded by saying, "Doc, I'm a plus size chic, of course I be hot all the time." She said yeah, you could be going through the change. She even told me that she could pop something and make my cycle come if I wanted her to. I was like, uhhhh no!!! Shoot, she might make me start bleeding and I may never be able to stop....ever. I told her that I was just gonna let nature take its course and go from there. So I am in a mini stage of menopause to me. Even if it should come tomorrow, it sholl was enjoyable while it lasted.



  1. LOL! I don't know why doctors just won't say they don't know. There is no standard. My gyn said if I don't have a cycle for at least six months. I started having hot flashes a year ago, but with a cycle. My cycle has just been WEIRD! I like the word mini-pause, but from what I've learned it's peri-menopause. So when you're not having your period and just have symptoms of whatever, isn't that menopause. Then what's after that? Living? LOL... I'm with you; just stop the periods already.

  2. You are too funny!....I be hot all the time! I love that! If it is a mini-pause (again, too funny!) I hope it's gentle, and the hot don't come on like it does for my poor mother, who suddenly opens windows in the dead of winter and aims the fan at her armpits.

  3. Can she give me something so my cycle stops? I need to tell my cycle I don't need it because I don't want children, but I don't think it will listen
