I have been suffering with a premature menopause for 10 years

Customer Question

I have been suffering with a premature menopause for 10 years now. I have been trialling HRT for nearly 6 years... Having tried numerous tablets, patches, and now on my last chance saloon, second maximum dosage implant. I have been under various gynaecologists and am now under a Professor as no one else seems to know what to do with me.
My symptoms have been horrendous and continue to be. They include frequent urination, all night sweating, excaserbated migraines, mood swings, depression, a major 'red mist', insomnia, fatigue etc.... I do have other medical conditions and have had two life saving surgeries, which I believe, the trauma to my body caused the early onset of the menopause.
Also, my hormone levels are almost non existent, even with HRT and do not fall in, or barely on the scale.
One gynaecoligist mentioned to me that, it could be my lymph glands, however I know nothing about these.
Could you please give the input of your wisdom, by telling me what your view is please?...Generally, and also whether there could be another or other reasons for my being soooo unique and going through this at a relatively young age!?... I have been brief in my background description, but would be more than happy to elaborate should you wish to ask me for any further information!..
Many thanks in advance. I very much look forward to hearing back from you.
Kind regards
